Call Us What We Carry: Poems by Amanda Gorman

emotional inspiring reflective medium-paced


I don’t usually read or enjoy poetry all that much, but Amanda Gorman’s collection was eloquent and emotional in a way that I wasn’t expecting. 

Her words perfectly capture the spirit and emotions that pretty much everyone has felt at some point in the past few years and I can’t imagine anyone not finding at least one poem that will deeply resonate. Even if you don’t like (or enjoy) poetry, I still urge you to pick this up—you may be surprised how much you enjoy it. 

And if your curious, some of my faves were:

At First 
The Shallows 
Fury & Faith
The Truth In One Nation
What We Carry 
(And of course) The Hill We Climb
