Heal Your Wounds With Words

The latest injustices with the United States have left many people in fear, panic, and frustration.

The one thing we can all use right now is a message of hope.

Let these poets of the past remind you of your worth and resilience.

Langston Hughes on turning a new a leaf,

Besides,

They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—
I, too, am America.

Maya Angelou on rising above it all,

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Audre Lorde on power,

Woman power
is
Black power
is
Human power
is
alwasy feeling
my heart beats
as my eyes open
as my hands move
as my mouth speaks

I am
are you

Ready.
