Discovering Italy: July 15th by Melody Meadows 

Crossroads of Culture, Heritage and History

In “Ulysses” Alfred, Lord Tennyson said, “I am a part of all that I have met.” Every experience we have a humans shapes us and makes us who we are. I saw Michelangelo’s David for the fourth time today. However, today it held a different meaning for me. Today, the experience of this trip was in my heart. Today, the boy who would be king moved me in a different way.

The Boy Who Would Be King

The boy who would be king

        stood determined 

        before the giant

        his enemy Goliath

        armed only with a slingshot

        the heart of a king

We stand armed with knowledge

Our hearts to guide us 

As we take on the giants

          of discrimination




As we are as determined 

As the boy who would be king.
