The Future of the Youth Poet Laureate & Youth Poet Laureate Featured Poet, Alexandra Huynh

Writing Prompt: 

Write a Life Cycle poem about a recurring experience that you’ve seen, experienced yourself, or imagine. The last line of the poem should end with a comma and lead into the first line of the poem—as if they’re two halves of a sentence—so you can read the poem top to bottom on an infinite loop.
