A photo of a poem by Nayyirah Waheed. The poem is called Name, and the words read: you are a story. do not become a word. one word. because you want to be loved. love does not ask you to be nothing for something.

Daily Helping for October 13th, 2023 – Nayyirah Waheed – Name

It’s Friday the 13th and France is on strike. Because of course France would be on strike the one day I actually have to get somewhere. So while I’d really like to stamp my feet in frustration, I’m not going to. Instead, I’m going to read the amazing words of poet Nayyirah Waheed and revel in their beauty. Because that’s a much more productive way to deal with a Friday the 13th when France is on strike.
