Def Jam Poetry

First Writing Since by Suheir Hammad

'I cried when I saw those buildings collapse on themselves
Like a broken heart,
I have never owned pain
That needs to spread like that.'

'If any light is to come
It will shine from the eyes of those who look for peace and justice
After the rubble and rhetoric are cleared
And the phoenix has risen.

Affirm life, affirm life'
