Amanda Gorman Poem Review: A few weeks ago, the writer Amanda Gorman was exhausted and worried that she would not be able to fulfill her monumental task: to compose a poem about national unity at the opening ceremony of Joseph R. Biden’s elected President Jr.
“I had this big thing, probably one of the most important things in my career I ever will do. I will only die if I tried to climb this mountain in time.” “And they were like, I only can move.
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.”
