Poetry > Prose

Clarissa Ramos, a high school student still finding her place in the world, gives us a glimpse into her world through her meaningful poetry.





I write poetry because prose doesn’t satisfy me

Prose is news articles and press statements

Poetry is loud, devastatingly silent, love, hate, sadness, joy, and always alive

Poetry is emotion

Prose is someone’s take on emotions

Prose is cold-hard facts

Poetry is the human condition


“Poetry is the human condition”
