Quotes: B by Sarah Kay

I want her to look at the world through the underside of a glass-bottom boat, to look through a microscope at the galaxies that exist on the pinpoint of a human mind, because that's the way my mom taught me.

I've taken to watching videos of Sarah performing B on an almost weekly basis. There's something about the last couple of lines especially that brings tears to my eyes every single time. Good tears, happy tears...because they remind me of all the good in the world. It's there, fighting through all the heartache and the troubles. Sometimes it might not shout as loudly, but it is always there.

  1. Oh isn't Sarah Kay just incredible! I love her poetry but there is nothing better than watching her perform her spoken word because the emotion she can convey through that is just astonishing! x

  2. I'm ashamed to say that until I read your post I had never heard of Sarah Kay, but I have just watched her TED Talk and I am in awe of her, her poetry is incredible!
