Think of those that marched this road before, And those that will march here in years to come, The road in shadow and the road in the sun, The road before us and the road all done, History is watching us and what will we become. Salena Godden – soon come to Hastings.

Pessimism is for Lightweights

A collection of 13 pieces of courage and resistance, these are poems written for, during and after attending protests and rallies. Poems written for the women’s march, for women’s empowerment and amplification, poems that salute people fighting for justice, poems on sexism and racism, class discrimination, period poverty and homelessness, asylum seekers, immigration and identity. This work reminds us that Courage is a Muscle, it also contains a letter from the spirit of Hope herself, because as the title suggests, Pessimism is for Lightweights.
