June 15, 2017 – Nayyirah Waheed

This book, was gifted to me several years ago and I never got around to reading it. I picked it up today, its stark, white, plain cover with just four letters followed by a period in the bottom right corner calling out to me. Most of the poems are very short and some are even just one line, and they are all incredibly powerful. Just, WOW!

if i write
what you may feel
but can not say.
it does not
make
me a poet.
it makes me a bridge.
and I am humbled
and
i am grateful
to assist your heart in speaking.
 
 
–grateful
