Another poem time!
I read a book about strong women. I reviewed a book about strong women. Click the link to read the review for Watch Us Rise by Renée Watson and Ellen Hagan, the story that inspired this poem.
I Read a Book Today I read a book today that tore out my heart. I read a book today that ticked my sides. I read a book today that opened my eyes. I read a book today that made me want to speak up. The book I read today was about women. I read a book today that made me cry. The book I read gave me hope. It was about love of a different kind A sweeter kind, a kinder kind. It was aggravating, bone shaking, protest making! I want to speak out and speak up. Scream out and stand up for what is right, turn down what is wrong. The book I read taught me how to stand up and what to stand up for. It gave my passion a spark, my writing a new voice a new way to speak. I read a book today from two amazing women. These women gave me articulated insight into a scary, hate-filled world with a reason to fight harder stronger, without Violence. I read a book today that made me feel everything and left me with a valuable message. I read a book today that all women should read. A story men need to understand In a world where this, the moral of the story is the real world problem and Not fiction. Not fantasy. Real problems with real solutions. The book I read today inspired me.
I wrote this poem after I’d finished reading Watch Us Rise. That book shook me in a way that no other book has done before. Pick it up, read it. Stand up for what you believe in and like this post if you like this poem x
