Amanda Gorman nails it with her poem ‘The Hill We Climb’

For me, the highlight of Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day was Amanda Gorman’s rendition of ‘The Hill We Climb’.

Amanda, who is the America’s first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate, began her poem asking “When day comes, we ask ourselves where can we find light in this never-ending shade?” The remaining 5-minutes was spell-binding, generating accolades from across the globe.

Describing herself as a “skinny black girl descended from slaves and raised by a single mother [who] can dream of becoming president, only to find her self reciting for one”, she delivered an unforgettable piece of work. Not a surprise then that her poems are already trending on book sites!
