Student Writing: "Voodoo" by Caiya Anders

The sound of the voodoo drum starts to beat faster. The music plays harder as the Queen of Voodoo starts to cry as the people of New Orleans do not understand her. The days get hard and the queen gets weaker as the beat of the drums beats faster. We wonder to ourselves what is New Orleans? What can we find in a place like this? Can we find love?
