Peer-Portrait: Found Poetry

So for this assignment, my class was told to create a poem that represents our project partner in some way; my partner and I swapped a mini Q and A to gather information about each other as a result. The poem was to be formed using three resources and one of the sources had to originate from the New York Times. Below in the attachment, you can find my peer found poem. There should be exactly six pages worth, with an additional seventh page for works cited.


If however, for some reason you cannot read this (which is understandable), here in text is the poetry below as well:

Hard knocks, a born fighter, courage and fearlessness won many friends. Life, after a long fight rose to a position of some influence. The want of wholesome thinking caused more than the general effect. Finally, a fresh lease of life. By substituting the want of that one thing, deadly power. At last, a rising in the ranks of social life and not concerned with the question of people. The world’s mine oyster, which I will open. Championing the cause of people, not afraid or ashamed. As the reckless and irreligious spirit continued poverty creating the half-starved weaver. Patient a little longer, no more opposed to thought…..that cry, a trap. Believe in youth. Wish for a helping hand to be revived, and art to be fostered once more. She pushes forth in the hardest race of her life. She walks.” You are doing it.” Believe. Expect to win. A long shot taken with projection, examine as action. Rise and gather at the window, opening the little room onto the uncertain future. In patches of darkness, melting into the unseen….beautifully silent. Yet already developed    a possibility   at the end of a time to live…………..a time… die.


Hello, My name is Megan Taylor, I am a returning student here at Parsons; my major is Fashion Design with a peaking interest in environmentalism and animal welfare; I hope to transform the industry someday...slowly but surely. My wish is to combine luxury and aesthetic appeal with the consciousness of how and where it is made along with the idea of what to do with it after use. I have been following my need to create and share with the world art and fashion since the tender age of eleven years old.
