Poetic Mondays:nayyirah waheed

Each month I will feature a poet each Monday of the month. I figured I’d get a head start with our Poetic Mondays (I honestly couldn’t wait until next Monday). This month’s featured poetess is nayyirah waheed, author of salt and nejma. I love the thought provoking simplicity of her writing that no matter how simple awakens emotions within you. If you have yet to read any of nayyirah waheeds poety, it’s about time that you get on the band wagon.
