Críticas

I am not one to normally enjoy or be moved by poetry, but I found myself feeling so much when reading Amanda's poems. The descriptive narrative and creative word play throughout invokes memories of emotions felt when it was written. Some poems felt much more impactful than others, but the ones that hit hit me hard.

PreS-Gr 3—A child notices trash piles and resolves to do something about them to help beautify the community.
With delightful collage illustrations, this book reminds readers that everyone has the power to come together and
make a change.

I distinctly remember being blown away by the author's recital during the inauguration, and I watched it on YouTube today before reading the poem slowly to appreciate it in a different way. Even if the world on the whole seems to have changed for the worse and not for the better since then, to me the poem is still perfect, both in its form and language and in its message. Reading it slowly in a book made me appreciate the rhythm, the alliterations and the word play even more.

As for the message, I want to quote the ending of the poem:

For there is always light,
If only we are brave enough to see it,
If only we are brave enough to be it.


This resonates with me even more today than three years ago.
