In solidarity with Black Lives Matter, TNB Poetry has created this space for BIPOC voices to shine. We will be publishing work by Black poets daily.  Black Lives Matter.


What do I have to do to be human? Do I have to breathe?
Do I have to scream?
Do I have to cry?
Do I have to die?
What do I have to do to be human?
Do I have to smile?
Do I have to speak?
Do I have to be mute?
Do I have to see?
What do I have to do to be human?
What do I have to do to be human?
Nothing. I just am.
And if you gave it any thought, you’re part of the problem.
