Amanda Gorman writes end of year poem, ‘New Day’s Lyric’

Poets rarely enjoy the kind of attention Gorman received in 2021, but in an email to The Associated Press, she reflected less on her own success than on the state of the country. Gorman wrote that last year’s ‘chaos and instability’ had led her to reject the idea of ​​going “back to normal” and instead struggling to “get beyond it.” She mentioned Maya Angelou’s poem “Human Family” and added: “Being a family, a country, does not require that we are the same or agree on everything, only that we continue to try to see the best in each other and move “forward to a common future. Whether we like it or not, we are in this together.”
