“To Leave A Memory”
Haydee Tamara Bunke
So I must leave, like flowers that wilt,
Will my name be forgotten,
And nothing remain on earth?
At leaset flowers and song.
How then, must my heart behave?
Is it in vain that we live, that we appear on the earth?
The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
