Poetry teen dating
My body while flaunted is self-conscious of how it will be judged. Each touch is a switch that triggers a new or old memory.
In honor of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, the group showed a short film on teen dating violence created by Mind Warp Entertainment LLC in collaboration with the El Paso County Attorney's Office. The MOST Club showed the film to about 60 tenth grade young men and had a discussion afterward facilitated by Men Can Stop Rape's Director of Community Education Jason Page and MOST Club member Nile Myers. 23, two MOST Club members, Maurice from Beaufort High School and Tahj from Whale Branch High School in Beaufort, SC, took to the stage to perform original poetry for a group of 36 middle school MOST Club students from Ridgeland Middle School, also located in South Carolina.
Your bright joyous bounce has been battered into a slow-lapping sludge.
You became stagnant – no sparkle across your surface, no glide in your movement – shut down, shut in, shut off and shut out.
Heavy metals weighed you down and trampled your exuberance. Later, you hid yourself – a horrid, scarred, poisoned, shocked and used up body – until the destruction ended.
Just lately you’ve been peeking out from behind those reedy curtains - your liquid skin is clearing – the scars are fading, and a slight playfulness sprints across your white-capped waves.
