I'm really increased by the way that you set up your blog. It's not clumped together or plain. It's beautifully organized. I can see that you put a lot of thought into the video that you choose for your blog because both are such strong poems. Keep blogging! Good job!

Our youth are making a difference by speaking out using the creative form of poetry. They're informing the public about the issue they have with the world today.

Poetry benefits the youth by speaking to them about the truth they dont understand just yet . They speak about important matters that the media are afraid to talk about . That video was everything you want poetry to be ; Meaningful , Deep , & made me shed a few tears .

Our youth benefit through expressing themselves and poetry does just that. Me personally, I don't get too influenced by other peoples words and feelings. I must honestly say that this poem touched me though. Their message is so true about how the young kill the young. Many times there is no reason for the killing but they happen. The only way to stop it is to bind as one community. It is hard to do such thing will certaing ethnicities though, such as black people. I feel black people don't know how to join together and rejoice with happiness.

Poetry Is A Good Way For Someone To Express Them Selves , Instead Of Acting On Anger People Should Do Other More Benifical Things , Such As Poetry And Boxing ! I Feel If We Exaggerated More Postive Things Instead Of Money , Drugs , And Females Violence Would Surly Decrease .

Our youth are benefiting from poetry by expressing their ideas, their feelings, their experiences, and their pain in an artisitc way that's meant for everyone. It is the most comfortable way for some, and the only way for others.

I believe that youth express themselves through different mediums such as art, song, dance, poetry as well as other things. Poetry can allow the youth to express the way they feel about life, their perspective, emotion, and confusion. I also believe what they said about young people killing other young people is true. Often times they are killing for no reason, or an irrelevant reason.

The best way of self expression has been poetry for thousands of years I believe that the best way that teens could cultivate themselves is through poetry, and i think that the teens in the video are doing an excellent work. Keep up with your dreams and expectations Tranisha

There are messages, and then there are things that are said. People (read: elders, teacher, parents, authorities, etc...) say things all of the time to young people, but we all know the truth about that, they talk but kids don't listen. These videos show something else. They show that many young people know the truth about these things, and they aren't talking to young people, they are speaking for them. Thanks, for sharing some young poets who have found the right frequency; I hope you get a lot of friends to dial in.

I think poetry is a good way to reach out the young black teens. This poetry really kept me in touch with it and felt the meaning of it. All great poetry have expressions that make you feel you are there and you know what's going on and this is one of those poetries.

Kids now in days would beable to influence the ones around them. It can get other people involved that have nothing to do or heading down the wrong path.

Poetry is a good way to let out emotion and express yourselves. Some people don't know how to write poems so they wouldn't be able to do this.
