Home 9 Issue 9 I’ve Become the Moon by Alejandra Medina

Alejandra Medina, age 21 (alum)

This is the metaphor I thought of when searching for the one that captures how it felt for me to grow up, passing through phases and faces, until discovering who I really was.

I’ve Become the Moon

I’ve become the moon who spends each night
slowly going through her many phases
until she finds the one that fits
and becomes wielder of the tides.
