Being Woke

SO many amazing poems-I love my spoken word!

Notable lines:

“And so, immigration is like tucking your roots / carefully into yourself / and repotting in a different land.”

“Your body is always a good body / because it carries the good in you.”

“We can choose to keep the tools for ourselves, or we can choose / to use it to help people who don’t have what we do.”

“But we also have imaginary boxes – / boxes where we put people / based on what we’ve learned from our families / or what we see on TV.”
