    Inaugural poet Amanda Gorman, the Youth Poet Laureate of 2017, delivers a poem at President Joe Biden's inauguration. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO: cnb.cx/2NGeIvi
    Amanda Gorman, 22, became the youngest inaugural poet in U.S. history after reciting her poem “The Hill We Climb.”
    “But while democracy can be periodically delayed, it can never be permanently defeated,” Gorman read. “In this truth, in this faith, we trust.”
    Gorman is the current United States Poet Laureate. At age 16, Gorman became the Youth Poet Laureate of Los Angeles and later became the first National Youth Poet Laureate in 2017 as a sociology student at Harvard.
    First Lady Jill Biden invited Gorman to participate in the inauguration in late December after hearing the poet at the Library of Congress.
    Gorman immediately made waves following her reading at the inaugural ceremony, becoming the top trending Google search topic in the U.S.
    Her words rang across the country: “A skinny Black girl descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president, only to find herself reciting for one.”

When day comes we ask ourselves, 1 where can we find light in this never-ending shade? The loss we carry, a sea we must wade We've braved the belly of the beast 5 We've learned that quiet isn't always peace And the norms and notions of what just is Isn't always just-ice And yet the dawn is ours 10 before we knew it Somehow we do it Somehow we've weathered and witnessed a nation that isn't broken but simply unfinished 15 We the successors of a country and a time Where a skinny Black girl descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president only to find herself reciting for one 20 And yes we are far from polished far from pristine but that doesn't mean we are striving to form a union that is perfect We are striving to forge a union with purpose 25 To compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters and conditions of man And so we lift our gazes not to what stands between us but what stands before us We close the divide because we know, to put our future first, 30 we must first put our differences aside We lay down our arms so we can reach out our arms to one another We seek harm to none and harmony for all 35 Let the globe, if nothing else, say this is true: That even as we grieved, we grew That even as we hurt, we hoped That even as we tired, we tried That we'll forever be tied together, victorious 40 Not because we will never again know defeat but because we will never again sow division Scripture tells us to envision that everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree And no one shall make them afraid 45 If we're to live up to our own time Then victory won't lie in the blade But in all the bridges we've made That is the promise to glade The hill we climb 50 If only we dare It's because being American is more than a pride we inherit, it's the past we step into and how we repair it We've seen a force that would shatter our nation 55 rather than share it Would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy And this effort very nearly succeeded But while democracy can be periodically delayed it can never be permanently defeated 60 In this truth in this faith we trust For while we have our eyes on the future history has its eyes on us This is the era of just redemption 65 We feared at its inception We did not feel prepared to be the heirs of such a terrifying hour but within it we found the power to author a new chapter 70 To offer hope and laughter to ourselves So while once we asked, how could we possibly prevail over catastrophe? Now we assert How could catastrophe possibly prevail over us? 75 We will not march back to what was but move to what shall be A country that is bruised but whole, benevolent but bold, fierce and free 80 We will not be turned around or interrupted by intimidation because we know our inaction and inertia will be the inheritance of the next generation Our blunders become their burdens 85 But one thing is certain: If we merge mercy with might, and might with right, then love becomes our legacy and change our children's birthright 90 So let us leave behind a country better than the one we were left with Every breath from my bronze-pounded chest, we will raise this wounded world into a wondrous one We will rise from the gold-limbed hills of the west, 95 we will rise from the windswept northeast where our forefathers first realized revolution We will rise from the lake-rimmed cities of the midwestern states, we will rise from the sunbaked south We will rebuild, reconcile and recover 100 and every known nook of our nation and every corner called our country, our people diverse and beautiful will emerge, battered and beautiful When day comes we step out of the shade, 105 aflame and unafraid The new dawn blooms as we free it For there is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it If only we're brave enough to be it 110

How can she stand in front of the most violent and racist party in American history who, for months, burned down cities and murdered people, while claiming they "seek harm to no one"? I'm sick of the gaslighting. Joe Biden is a racist, and his party spreads a racist, poisonous ideology. You've all been misled. It's not the right doing this. I promise with all my heart and soul. It's the left. Already there are children turning their parents in "to the authorities" to "be held accountable for dissent" against the left. the right isnt doing that. Trump never did that. You've all been used. You either comply with Democrats... or they want you suffering and dead. Biden Administration, you may trick the kids but you dont trick us who were once your henchmen. Shame on you, Democrats. Shame on you for what you've done. Shame on you for your fascist ways. Shame on you for using this young woman to spread your hate in a soft voice, to camouflage your racist ideology. You cant hide behind tokens. I know what you are. I've been there. I've seen you. WE... see you. I will never EVER comply with what you are. You tricked me once before. I will die before uniting with evil again.

I have so much to say about this election but I must first speak from my heart. This young queen had me in tears. She was so articulate, so poised so captivating yet so strong. Today marks a day that our little girls can stand with dignity, pride and hope of their future. Our little black girls have seen on today that they can be what ever they set their minds to be. Congratulations to Vice President Kamala Harris, the first woman, first African American woman first Asian woman to become Vice President. I am really overwhelmed with joy and so thankful to have witnessed this amazing inauguration. WELCOME "46" We have a real President.. Thank you God for keeping them safe through the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. History has been made!

Tick tock...tick tock... Life is counting down on your internal clock. Memories that feel as if they occurred yesterday turn to flashes of moments that seem to fade away. People you once knew walk by without a clue. The times you once shared exist as if you were never there. Years fly...friends die... and you never know when you'll say your last goodbye. Oh, how I wish I could turn back time, spend it with loved ones and cherish what once was mine. Or to go back even more, being a kid in a candy store. How I miss the way I used to feel on Christmas day when Santa was real. But back to reality...back to today, family is scarce and memories continue to fade away. Tick tock...tick tock... How I wish I could control this clock. 🕰🎯💎Thomas ❤
