Amanda Gorman Poem Review: A couple of weeks ago Amanda Gorman felt exhausted and worried that her monumental mission could not be accomplished: writing a poem about national unity to recite Joseph R. Biden’s elected president at the opening, she said in an interview. “I had the huge thing, probably one of the most important things in my career I’d ever do.” ‘They were the way they were; only if I try to climb the mountain at the same time would I pass by.
On the 6th of January, when pro-Trump Rioters hit the Congress halls with arms and fireflies, Gorman managed to write a couple of lines a day and was about half way through the poem.
“I will not gloss in my poem over what we have experienced over the last few weeks and, I dare hope, over the last several years. But what I hope to do in the poem is to be able to use my words to find out how our country can still unite and heal,” she said. “That is done in such a manner that the harsh truths that America needs to reconcile with are not erased or neglected.”
