Poetry Tuesday – so much more

That’s right, I just declared this Tuesday and all Tuesdays henceforth be Poetry Tuesday on this blog. Here’s Rupi Kaur to kick of the first one.

i want to apologize to all women
i have called pretty
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is the most you have to be proud of when your
spirit crushed mountains
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re pretty
but because you are so much more than that

I am still very new to poetry but keen to explore more. Appreciate any recommendations!
