Everyday Millennials

Tia Serena-Rose Thomas              Student, WPK Campus

When I first started Berkeley College, it was at first a very lonely experience. It felt like whenever I tried to actively converse with someone or form a bond, their eyes were always glued to their phone and that would always slightly discourage me. It was like I wasn't there and that I didn't matter. So this picture kind of summarizes the frustrations I sometimes feel with others my age.

Art Peak

Sabrina Smalls Student, NYC Campus

This is probably the peak of my art and experience. At this time in high school I was experimenting a lot with my style. I made sure to try to put a lot of details into my work because they always seemed dull and plain to me. Along with a few other drawings, I really like how most of these turned out. I always enjoy making my own original characters.

Risa

Steven Figueiredo
Associate, WPK Campus

I wrote this song recently in honor of my mother in law, Risa, who passed away in 2013 from cancer. This song was written on an acoustic guitar and also features keyboards. I wrote a little poem in regards to my mother in law and put some chords together to create the song. I thought it needed a bit more so I added the piano riff and the keyboards (strings). My friend Dave lends a hand and plays the guitar solo.

Duality from the Heartbroken Middle

Summers spent quiet around the dark of the light, 

He was upset his mind had taken control.

Package car shelves burt little knees and little butts,

Lost at his own mersey of letting go. 


She knew of the issues, she had been the past.

Dolled up neatly you would never see a frown,

Hot glued shards of heart broke up her fragel hands,

Concealed in a bubble of hairspray and down. 


Let us ring around the perfume tree gay.

Shakes from the ringing crack outdated faults. 

The sound of the road can’t outweigh the play,

The sounds of of the road crowd up his thoughts.


Take him away; she yelled at us frighteningly.

Take me away; he cried to himself alone.

 

This poem can be read while exploring the following photos: Armandina, Self Portrait, Mixed Signals and Duality.

From: Summer Job in Morris Heights (and other poems)

 

Eighth Grade After a Shitty Summer

The street was named after her grandfather,

but not really,  just the sounds it made 

coming out of her mouth.

She would whisper it low under the skin 

when she thought the day would get folded-over 

like a hot pillow.

No one cared that much with her feet all over the couch,

and the skinny strip of gum she pulled-at during 

the longest, angry part of the day.

Her mother asked her to go outside by the swings,

or just the dogs who run around the park 

to ice cream truck sounds.

That too.

Before the weeks red stamps, and postcards 

from her friends who got on planes,

she wandered around malls pushing back

the flowered tops,

nothing but hard rock from the overhead speakers.

Her father saw them in concert.

It's okay with school starting, the pens and all that 

tapping on her phone who loves who,

all those questions;

all those wrong answers always.

 

Everything inspires me, especially the sad stuff.

Bonnie Lafazan

Library Director, WBR Campus

 

I connect in ways never before,

I scroll and waste time in a bore

I use it to track my son,

To read when I eat alone and there is no one.

I order and track my shipments abound

And view the Ring to watch them the packages be laid on the ground.

I take thousands of videos and pictures to capture their smiles and

Share and relieve the gazillion files.

I “Google” and “Siri” questions everyday

And get so frustrated when she doesn’t understand what I say.

The group texts go on for hours..

Let’s just make up our minds-are we chipping in for flowers?

I listen to so many books and podcasts

Sometimes so good I wish the traffic lasts.

Social media is my friend and foe, I love connecting and learning from my various groups

I can learn so much and be kept in the loop.

But sometimes the negativity, politics, ads, and over posting by some of their exotic trips

Makes me question myself and some of my relationships.

I use it to shop, bank, schedule, email, navigate, order food, listen to music, watch tv, play games, read books and more.

What did I ever do without my phone before?

When Twilight Falls

When twilight falls along the shore

The seagulls cry against the waves

Nirvana parables of eternity

Cytherean whispers of forgotten graves;

 

Apocalypse-scented, magenta-blossoming silences

Of silver-almandine sands weaving pink-amaryllis streams

Of lotus-altared light across saffron-glistening amplitudes

Of honeysuckle-dewed, camellia-gloaming dreams.

 

My poetry is often inspired by the beauty, the serenity, and the vitality of nature.

Gabriella Aliotta

Student, WPK Campus

 

Where are you?

Where did you go?

I saw you laying there battling the in between. Are you in your garden?

Or down the shore amongst the sea?

I saw you leave but I don’t know where you are.

Are you sitting in a chair on a deck in your backyard?

Or are you among the birds like the ones you used to feed?

Are you there? Are you where you want to be?

Did you see your love again, running to your feet?

Was she at peace? How did you move on?

Where did you go? 

 

I wrote this poem after mourning the loss of my grandparents who both passed away from Alzheimers. This poem comes from the heart about what happens after we move into the next life.
