IN OUR OWN VOICES
|Jimmy Santiago Baca
"I think language gives us courage. Poetry gives us courage and faith to live with open wounds. Poetry gives us the means to understand pain in a meaningless age. Language gives us insight into the darkness that we all stumble into today. So, I don't know
if it heals, but I do know that it provides us with what we lack. Language provides us with something that we desperately need. "
