National Poetry Month: A few poems I love
I love writing so it only seems natural that I love poetry. I love the use of a language, rhythm schemes, metaphors- and how the words come alive and leave a lasting impression on my soul.
Below are a few poems that are dear to my heart. Read, and watch a video, of a few poems I love by “wordogist” that I admire. There is also a poem by yours truly. Make sure to comment below and let me know your favorite poems.
Inspired by National Poetry Month I wrote the poem below:
Hammered by Toya From Harlem
Everyday, I try to put the hammer down
the LOUD and heavy one
that tries to nail in doubt
-And pull out confidence
1. Untitled poem by Rupi Kaur from Milk and Honey
2. The Negro Speaks of Rivers by Harlemite Langston Hughes
4. Circumstances by Nayyirah Waheed from Salt
