Audre Lorde


My second favorite poem is “Poetry is Not a Luxury” by Audre Lorde.  Why?  Because it empowers the mind.  You can change this poem up to relate to your own life whether you’re Male, Female, White, Black, Gay or Straight.  I love it!  This poem helped to give me strength during the most difficult times.  It did this by teaching me where to find it.  The strength I needed was within me and it is within all of us, we just need to figure out where to find it.  Enjoy your Sunday!

Please follow this link to read the poem and let me know what you think of it:
