a poem by Rebecca Eneyni, ’19

Some people in this life

Have pure intentions,

Untainted kindness,

And blazing hearts,

Aching to be shared.

These people

are the sun peeking from the

crevice between humble snowed mountains

They are the color seeping from the

lilting dewy flowers of a spring


They are the resilient yellow shine

of a gibbous moon

piercing the muffled dark

They are the beauty that grows

ever more brilliant

in the face of a cruel world.
