I Love You, Sarah Kay


First Time Records

I love you, Sarah Kay

you showed me how

to stand on my own two feet

and speak the truth

 

You taught me to

consider myself

beautiful

and let me know

I could be myself

and do things

I thought were impossible

 

You gave me confidence

and helped me to see

that if you have something to say,

say it with force

say it carefully

and say it with love

 

Thank you

I love you, Sarah Kay

This poem is dedicated to Sarah Kay, an amazing poet from NYC who founded Project V.O.I.C.E. – an organization for advancing Spoken Word poetry.  Check her out!
