“The theme for the 23nd National Poetry Month is resilience.
Resilience is the courage to start each day anew.
Resilience is the backbone of generations of trauma, the silence at the dinner table, the bow to culture’s violin.
Resilience is geographical, spiritual, historical. It’s the fight against climate change, the inner battle with mental health, the outcry for human rights and an end to systemic racism.
We meet resilience in every corner we’ve been backed into, every hardship that we endure.
What does it mean to be resilient?
This NPM 2021, we celebrate, reflect on and respect the resilience that has made us who we are.”
