Birth
by Christofer Barbieri

Birth is the ultimate lottery.
Contradictory to equality.,
Nobody loses entirely.

To win is established
In advantage you recieve.

Situational conditions.
Unregulated admission.
Head starts in life given.

Our Babies
by Corey Alpough

What are they doing to our babies
Looking on the news and see that they been dying lately,
What is going on this world its getting kinda crazy
Drop them off at school to tell them see you later, maybe

They go to school to learn and have fun
Shouldn’t have to worry about a killer with a gun
Preaching to them in the room like a nun
Praying to God that they never have to run

Fantasy World
by Jahnvi Sharma

Meaning to build a castle,
the one where no one interrupts.
Trying to protect a secret in the walls,
a bailey where her life sums up.
Tired of running around like being chased,
feels a desire to have her kingdom and reign.

Craving for only a place to be herself
to have the cunning eyes off her head,
but the fantasy was ruined

For Lovers of Ale
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

That amber liquid far from insipid
Like molten honey but drawn from a tap,
Bitter or dark, the choices quite stark,
God's malted ale, nature's true sap.

Vikings grew strong, strengthened their bond,
Giving them courage for mayhem galore,
A beer in their hand, they pillaged the land
Never quite feeling tired or sore.

Twitter's Aflutter
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

Twitter's aflutter with Trump's missing tweets,
The window the measure of how his heart beats,
Half of the tweeters relieved beyond words,
The other half chirping like a flock of lost birds.

On one hand the world has lost a pastime
On the other the message is clearly sublime,
Words matter they echo, incite and inflame,
If used to promote ideas clearly lame.

Crabs in Our Neighbors' Chests
by Abel Alaw

The stars
that showered
towards Shell’s roof,
The swish of soda can
Opening, fused–
Together. Engulfing the silence,
stillness,
seclude,

And then, Explodes.

Ode to The World
by Oreo de Walkers

Feelings.
The most complex thing about humanity.
The justification for idiocy and the motive for love.
The notions fill our head that the world is roses and doves.
We reached 18 hoping it was.
Opening up to people who did not get love.
When will we wake up, life is not as easy as it seems.
These fake ideals are why humanity is ripping at the seams.

SHUT UP.

Hell of a Life
by Brendon Hall

What a time to be alive!
Living in a world where morals have been commodified.
Will you be a leader that assists in shattering the oppressive cycle of societal decay, or will you be yet another redundant cog in this malevolent machine?
Most of us live in denial of the impending doom we’re marching towards, yet the majority fails to realize we’re already living in a dystopia of our own creation.

When you look in the mirror, what do you see?
I don’t know about you, but I see a reflection that matches our society as a whole:
An entity that’s almost unrecognizable, broken, and emotionally drained.
A being that wants to do what’s right, but is rarely incentivized to do so unless it’s broadcast to an audience in order to portray virtuousness.

World
by Astha Kushwaha

They say ,

The world is oblong running on a path that is elliptic .

Trust me ,

I have seen the world that is wrong running on a path that is cryptic.
