Jeg ble inspirert av Amanda Gorman som leste sitt dikt "The Hill We Climb" i innsettelsesseremonien til president Joe Biden den 20.januar 2021, og skrev selv dette diktet like etterpå

Inspired by Amanda Gorman,

the brilliant and gracious herald  

who opened up the gates of glory, so all of us can

sing and praise and join the new and coming phase

of diginty and pride,

Watch out, I say!

The day is coming

when justice breathes

like new-born babies.

A wave will roll ashore, 

a blue–green sea

will call upon us all

to be

the change we´re dreaming of, 

the movement towards those crowded streets 

of righteousness and fairness.


And if you cannot fly the distance,

put on your shoes and walk!

And if you cannot walk, then crawl

like toddlers towards a mother´s arms, a father´s lap,

but move!

Watch out, I say!

A change is coming our way.
