YC 123 NEWCWC - Poetry Entry
From: [redacted]

Hello Ma’am,

I’d like to submit the below poem to the New Eden Capsuleers’ Writing Contest. It does not have a name.

Forgive my awkwardness, but could I please ask you to submit it on my behalf as an anonymous entry? Though I felt confident putting my name out there with my academic entry, I feel less so with this for some reason.

Please let me know if this is acceptable.


Right now, two people embraced
Today, a new face has introduced themselves
Where will they go?
What will they want?
Who will they love?
I can’t help but feel a desire to find out
Like it would help me to find myself.

Right now, one person crying
Today, something has been experienced again
What was it?
Where did it happen?
Who else was there?
I think I remember when you would share these thoughts with me too
The imaginary form of everyone, nestled within my own mind.

Because, at some point, we all came from somewhere
Regardless of whether we wanted to or were prepared to
Regardless of whether we knew why
Regardless of whether we knew where we were going
Regardless of whether we know when we’ll get there
I’d like it if we could go there together.
