Poetry to Memorize

I'm recovering from trauma. Last night, after a day full of obsessively ruminating on my trauma, I finally got the thoughts to go away by reciting poetry to myself. Yay! But I only know a couple poems by heart. I'd like to have more arrows in my quiver. Please recommend me some poems to memorize, and if you can, either link to the poem or copy it here. Think approximately the length of "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. Poems written by people of color, LGBT people, and women especially encouraged!
