Amanda Gorman Offers Inspiring Poem For The New Year

Amanda Gorman is back with a new poem to bring in a new year. The inaugural and Super Bowl poet debuted “New Day’s Lyric” on IG.

Amanda recited the work, which she wrote to honor both the hurt and the humanity, inside an empty theater. “This hope is our door, our portal,” she said. “Even if we never get back to normal, someday we can venture beyond it, to leave the known and take the first steps. So let us not return to what was normal, but reach toward what is next.” Check it out on the right…

In addition, Amanda announced that she would be helping to raise funds for the International Rescue Committee, an organization that has helped in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instagram had already pledged $50-thousand to the cause.
