April is National Poetry Month, a time when we celebrate poetry and recognize how it has shaped American culture. This year, KUT is participating in National Poetry Month by sharing poems written by students in the Blank Page creative writing programs at Kealing and Fulmore Middle Schools and the Writers' Workshop at Rawson Saunders School. You can read the and listen to the poems here, and you can also listen to the poems read on KUT 90.5 FM throughout the month of April.

Foot Steps

Read by Da'Shade Moonbeam

I leave my mark where ever I go

I show my journey

So the people that come after me

Know where they must travel

My imprint may be at times shallow

Because I prefer to go many places

Rather than linger in one spot

This is evidence of who I am

I don’t march in 4-mation

I walk my own path

To find my own stride
