2022-2023, Poem


Featured in the 2023 Winter Issue of Rambunctious

Bohdin Bright, '23

The pen is mightier than the sword,
But in the end they are each just a word,
Formed at the tip of the tongue,
Fuelled with breath from the lung,
A physical expression of thought,
A type of knowledge that cannot be bought
with time studying under a teacher:
Understanding is a journey; to each her
own unique image of the world around
us, a sense of the sounds that surround
us, an ocean of music to the ear.
In the end, other people are what we hear.
