Quoted by Florida's Poet Laureate, Peter Meinke, in this wonderful Poet's Notebook article: Drinking Cooperation.


** Selected by the editor of Your Daily Poem (YDP), Jayne Jaudon Ferrer, to feature on International Women's Day (2016). In addition to featuring a new poem each day, YDP sent subscribers links with special introductions. Here's Jayne's introduction to the poem, Fear of Being (shared with permission):  "Today is International Women's Day and I specifically chose Linda's poem because I want to remind every woman—and every man, for that matter—that your presence on this planet makes a difference. To be sure, some of us make a bigger difference than others, but you don't have to be a hero, a healer, a celebrity, a senator, or an activist to "make a footprint." You have no idea whose life you might impact, what path you may alter, what aspirations or achievements you might inspire. You? Yes, you. I hope you'll tuck Linda's last verse in your heart and whisper it aloud any time you have doubts about your purpose or value. I promise: you are here for a reason."  - Jayne Jaudon Ferrer
