"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day for National Poetry Month

Happy Poem in Your Pocket Day!!

Today, April 21st, is the day to go around with an awesome poem in your pocket and share it with EVERYONE!!  This is a fun way to participate in National Poetry Month, even if you don't usually read poetry.  The poem can be anything from a nursery rhyme to your favorite rap song.  

I find that this is a super fun way to expose yourself to new poetry, and also to remember the impact that poetry has on everyone's lives.  Trust me, there is poetry in all things, and even if you don't consider yourself a "poet" or a "poetry lover", you at one time were effected by a poem.

Below I've listed some poems recommended by Poets.Org and ones I think you should check out for sure!

If you want to learn more about Poem in Your Pocket Day or National Poetry Month, head over to Poets.Org and check out the different ways to celebrate for the rest of April!
