Poetry That Will Get You Through a Hard Time

Link: Poetry That Will Get You Through a Hard Time – won’t you celebrate with me

won’t you celebrate with me

a kind of life? i had no model.
born in babylon
both nonwhite and woman
what did i see to be except myself?

my other hand; come celebrate
with me that everyday
something has tried to kill me
and has failed.
—Lucille Clifton
