Poems of Peace, War, and Power

Suheir Hammad is a poet who performs two amazing poems in this TED Presentation.  What I Will and Break (Clustered) speak to the desire for peace in our world and the terrible effects of war.  But as she is a woman, they also speak to the strength of womanhood.

There are no particular great lessons here, rather the beauty of imagery and the spoken word.  I have always believe that people like Suheir have the ability to inspire the poets in all of us – perhaps after listen to her words, you will compose a few of your own.
