Sixth grader has poem published
A poem written by a Boyce Middle School sixth grader was recently selected for publication in the anthology, “A Celebration of Poets.” Suhavi Singh submitted her poem, titled “Freely Free,” to the writing contest sponsored by Creative Communication.
“This is an honor, as most students are not invited to be published,” Creative Communication Editor Tom Whorthen, Ph.D. said. “This publication brings together the best student authors in the United States.”
According to its website, “Creative Communication is devoted to the promotion of writing, teaching and appreciation of student writing. The intent of our student writing contests is to motivate student writers. The top entries are published in an anthology that will record the creative insights of today's student writers.”

Have you ever felt chained
Even though you have Liberty
Do you ever feel that no one is free, Until EVERYBODY's free?
If you do, come along with me, I’ll show you the things you
have never seen
Come, into my factory
Where everyone is Notoriously, Gloriously, Freely Free
The recipe, to freely free, of course, starts with you and me.
There are so many people on this Spree, but hidden, not
Inside their heart, wanting peace, but not knowing, how to
move their feet.
Thinking, they’re too small to make a change, that is the
biggest mistake one could make.
Do you know what it takes
Well, It’s for the World’s sake
Come, to my house
We’ll bake such a Cake
Throw Violence in the trash
The world ate enough of that
This one shall be endless
Generations and Generations shall remember the taste
It shall keep on flourishing
Until everybody knows the recipe
Of Freely Free.
