Road Signs – Poetry From Utah’s Youth In Care

Screen Shot 2018-08-24 at 9.55.01 AM

This anthology was entitled “Road Signs” after the poems were written. I selected this title because these students’ poems seemed to define the journey of their lives with the stops and sharp turns, dead ends and rough roads, construction zones and winding roundabouts. I dropped the poems into seven categories, which are more interchangeable than absolute. Most importantly, the title of the anthology inspired students and staff in YIC settings to play around and create the brightly colored artwork that accompanies these poems.

Dear Reader, have fun sampling the poems of these young poets. Enjoy as you will and learn as you can. Pick a bouquet of these wildflowers among the road signs along this winding road to celebrate the spring of 2018.
