LAUREN MAKAROV FEATURED IN OCTOBER ISSUE OF SPINNAKER MAGAZINE

Lauren Makarov, UNF alumna, took the stage and stood behind the podium. She read her poem “When you realize”:

When a man takes a belt and threatens you,
You begin to feel like a child again.
When you consciously consider your every
move to avoid punishment,
you begin to live like a fugitive.
When you look into the mirror and realize
You’re in jail,
You know it’s time to wake up.
