“Game of L.I.F.E.”, an original poem written and performed by Shanieya, a bluapple Alum from Treasure Coast High School in Port St. Lucie, Florida who is currently a sophomore at Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida
Poet @sh.kur says her poem “Game of L.I.F.E.” was inspired by the sayings “life is a game” and “play your cards right”. She wanted to emphasize how humans are dealt a bad hand, but there is still beauty beneath the corruption we see. She says “seeing death broadcasted daily should’ve never become the norm. We need change.” She believes change is possible through sympathy, empathy, and patience. #JournalingForJustice
