Inspiration: A New Page Dedicated to Influential Poets

I have created a new page dedicated to poets that have inspired me to be the person and writer I am today.

In honor of Black History Month and Langston Hughes’ birthday, I begin this page by featuring one of his poems that could not be more appropriate for the current state of politics.

The divisions we are facing in America and around the world are evident, to say the least. We think we are (or were) what our “forefathers” meant for us to be.

History (and poetry) will show you that we were not, we are not now, and seemingly, we never will be.
