Hi! This year (2022), I’ve decided to share a poem on my blog and podcast and read it aloud. It’s all a part of my quest to be brave and apparently the things that I’m scared about still include:

  1. My spoken voice
  2. My raw poems.

Thanks for being here with me and cheering me on, and I hope that you can become braver this year, too!


POLARITIES

If I were a man, would I take up all the space?
I am a woman. I try to claim spaces. None are mine. 

If I were a man, would I shout into the world?
I am a woman. I sometimes wonder what it is to not whisper. 

If I were a man, would I tell everyone where they should be? 
I am a woman. I sometimes wonder what it is to have a place. 

Hey, thanks for listening to Carrie Does Poems.

The music you hear is made available through the creative commons and it’s a bit of a shortened track from the fantastic Eric Van der Westen and the track is called “A Feather” and off the album The Crown Lobster Trilogy.
