Raising Our Voices
My piece "Raising Our Voices" expresses my hopes for us to come together to make change happen. The stanzas in the poem switch the pronouns from "We" to "I". This symbolizes that as an individual, I am required to advocate for different ideas, rather than what would be achieved with all of us together. "I" and "We" will translate to the same objective because I view us as separate people with the ability to come together and raise our voices for the greater good. I also hope others get inspired by the piece to make a change in their community.
