My Mentor

By Allison Stein, Assistant Editor and Poetry Editor


My mentor is a drop of rain
That gives life to a flower
Suffering in the heat of a desert
And longing for relief.

My mentor is wind on a still day,
A breeze that whooshes past me,
Echoes words of encouragement,
And gives me bravery and belief.

My mentor is a mother bird,
A guide that leads to love;
Enlightens, enchants, and endeavors;
And inspires me to follow.

My mentor is the smell of flowers,
The sweet, surreal scent
That makes me dream fearlessly
And motivates me to realize my fantasies.
