Poet Spotlight: Nayyirah Waheed

Hello Poetteers,

Instead of my own I decided to share one of my many favorites from Nayyirah Waheed's Salt:

i am terrified.
then i remember
i am
giving birth to a continent.

i remember
i am giving birth
a continent over and over.

Рthe process | writing a book | the ancestors were my midwives | ash̩.

Love, Fida
