Today’s poem comes to us from Deidra Nez, a high school student at Holbrook Indian School in Holbrook, Arizona. Deidra wrote a beautiful and wise bio to complement her poem. I think many can relate to how deeply music affects her life. Please join me in welcoming her to Friday’s Poet!
LIFE: During the time I was writing this poem I looked back on all the negatives and all the positives, and so I expressed myself through these understanding words, so others can understand me.
MUSIC: Music was what inspired me to write this, because I love music, all different types of music. One common thing they have is it makes me feel like this:
Lonely at some points
Imagine things that aren’t real
Fall and get back up
Effort is what brings you to the top.
Understanding the words
Sense the beat
In a state of forgetting time
Care about nothing else
BIO: My name is Deidra Nez, I am a Native American and from Arizona currently living on the reservation. I am a junior attending Holbrook Indian School. I love classical music, especially the violin and cello, they both have a soothing melody that fill my ears. I also like art because it was someone trying to express themselves through something very unique. Everyone has something unique, and I think they should use it to express themselves.
Thank you so much for sharing, Deidra! Post comments for this young poet below.
