Mayor Cory Booker announces the Geraldine R. Dodge poetry festival will be returning to NJPAC this fall and recites a personal poem he wrote called "Sometimes"
Sometimes the greatest strength is just putting your feet on the ground and telling the world: "I'm still here!" / And sometimes the greatest courage is in just walking out the door in spite of all your fear.
Sometimes the greatest love is just you forgiving you / And sometimes the greatest loyalty is to yourself staying true.
Sometimes the best fight is the one from which you walked away / And sometimes your best relationship is the one that despite it all, you just decided to stay.
Sometimes the best prayers don't involve a single word / And sometimes the best leaders of all are the ones who are seen but never heard.
Sometimes the biggest thing you can do is a small act of grace / And sometimes telling someone the truth without love is a cruel disgrace.
Sometimes smiling is the greatest act of defiance / And sometimes asking for help is the most meaningful example of self-reliance.
Sometimes the best medicine is to just laugh until you cry / And sometimes the greatest wisdom comes from accepting you will just never know why.
Sometimes just going to bed is the best antidote to trials and tribulations / And sometimes just being blessed to get up again and face it all, for one more day, is worthy of celebration.
