Invitation to Brave Space
By Micky ScottBey Jones
Together we will create brave space
Because there is no such thing as a “safe space”
We exist in the real world
We all carry scars and we have all caused wounds.
In this space
We seek to turn down the volume of the outside world,
We amplify voices that fight to be heard elsewhere,
We call each other to more truth and love
We have the right to start somewhere and continue to grow.
We have the responsibility to examine what we think we know.
We will not be perfect.
This space will not be perfect.
It will not always be what we wish it to be
It will be our brave space together,
We will work on it side by side

Inspiring piece of poetry. Love the language and the flow of the poem. Hope to see more from you. Have hope, write on! ❤️❤️❤️
Beautifully written from a deep and dark place with hope.
Beautiful poem. Too bad it was plagiarized it from an untitled poem by Beth Strano. Not rumor as Ms. Jones has admitted so.
