Richmond Love Out Loud, March 8th

Love Out Loud is one of Higher Achievement’s most beloved and honored traditions. The event marks the culmination of weeks of hard work and preparation where scholars study language styles, poetic elements, and the writings of well-known authors. Below is a poem from Richmond’s 2017 Love Out Loud event.


Mariana M., Wilder Achievement Center

If we all tried



A little more

The world would shine so beautifully

Like it never has before

If you’re doing the best you can

That’s all you can do

Just stay strong

Have faith

And persevere until the world catches up to you.
