For the short poetry lovers, here is a read that you will not regret. I’ve followed @nayyirah.waheed on Instagram for quite some time without really sharing her wonderful book ‘.salt‘ published in 2013. She’s very intense yet delicate in her word choice. She’s not afraid to speak on the perspectives of people of color. I would keep the poems that spoke to me most to reread and still find comfort in them each time. I’m happy to finally share it and hope it can help someone through rough times.
