Ms. DiOrio shared this poem (written in 2 minutes during her lunch period a few hours before) at the start of our Echoes Coffee House/Open Mic on Thursday, October, 15th. Photos and article to follow…
This gathering of young minds, hearts, and spirits
Warms my heart and makes me think
Anything is possible in a world
That too often disappoints, discourages, and confuses.
Here, in this artful house, we get nervous,
Take risks, and support each other.
The dreams of our fellow humans.
Each one of us knows
The delight of a new idea, the fear of failure,
The agony of defeat, and the triumph of will.
Today, each one of us revels in victory.
