Bernette Sherman does it again with her poetry book, Resist Persist. If you are one of those special people who understands that resistance and persistence can go hand in hand and that we have a duty to resist those things that are untrue to our highest sense of self, then this book is for you.
Be inspired, uplifted, and encouraged through a series of poems that challenge the status quo, recognize the existence of those who live in the margins whether due to ethnicity, gender, beliefs, or anything else that may set us apart; and compels us to wake up to our internal power, come together, and strive for something better.
This isn't your sweet poetry book filled with flowers and blue skies. While those do exist, I challenge you to go deeper with Resist Persist. This is a special collection of poetry on creating a reality outside the box, finding the courage to live your truth, and rising to the occasion of your life.
Resist that which is untrue to our highest sense of self.
Persist in that which expands love, peace, and truth for us and even the world.
From Rise Again:
Inside I scream, my cries unheard
Midnight in the garden of my inner world
Wrestle woman! Fight back! I yell
Lips unparted as I crawl through hell
Do you hear me – the time is now
Are you strong enough to break this ground
Till the soil and turn the roots
Rid us of the disease tormenting you
And though I’m afraid
I take another step
I don’t know where I’m going
And my feet are unsure
But I walk anyways
I open the doors
My fear oh my fear
I release you now
From Whisper in the Wind:
The keyboard does no justice
Yet it is where I am
My canvas to paint a better world
With vivid color, brush the land
You scoff, you laugh, you mock
And how I pity you
That you don’t see the prison
the cell you share with us
