The Shadow You Cast, Volume 1

This collection of thoughtful, original poems – written by tenth graders at Bronx Leadership Academy – invites you explore the conventional and unconventional understandings of heroism. From courage and morality to apathy and selfishness, these students put the archetype to the test.

“Those days you are struggling

to keep your head above water

When the waves are too big and too fast”

-Victoria S.
