25 phenomenal poets answered the call to submit their poetry with the theme of love and compassion. Vangile Gantsho writes about how we live in a world that seems to be intent on hurting women. Drawing from a symposium where the topic of discussion was about "living in a hopeless world and creative writing being a source of hope." Gantsho talks about how black women, the world over, are using social media, using the arts, to talk about how our magic, though tired of hardship and pain, is carrying us through. She picks up love and compassion threads from Linton Kwesi Johnson, Audre Lorde, Koleka Putuma and many other magical beings and draws courage from them as she seeks, and it is a plea for all really, to not land up in a place of hate.
