“Revolution for the Tested”

Yesterday my friend, Bonnie Kaplan posted a link to a poem that I just can’t keep still about. It is about writing and reading, and it says just what I agree with, exactly, only in the words of such a gifted poet. Here is an excerpt from it, and then I hope you’ll follow this link and go read the whole thing. It’s totally worth your time, I promise. It’s hard to pick the best part because it’s all so good. Here is a teaser:

Revolution for the Tested
by Kate Messner

Write for yourself.
Write because until you do,
You will never understand
What it is you mean to say
Or who you want to be.
Write because it makes you whole.

I think excerpting more would be stealing, so please click on the link and go read it. It’s delicious!
