"I love spoken word poetry. It's a hobby I'm good at. But, I don't perform it to achieve "fame." I don't do it for so-called "clout." I don't even like the term "fans." And after attending a few poetry slams and discerning how entrenched in politics they are, I never aspired to compete for a title. In fact, competitive poetry seems almost blasphemous. External validation is and has always been, inconsequential to me. But, of course, to each their own.
I believe Spoken Word is a sacred medium through which God uses me. I'm not exactly prolific when it comes to writing new poetry, and finishing a new piece takes me a very long time. But when I do manage to perfect a poem, its message cuts across the differences of my listeners and resonates unquestionably. My poetry doesn't hide. My poetry unearths and boasts the truth. People connect to that because we've all experienced the euphoria of love, we've all endured sorrow, and we've all been unwitting students of humiliation at some point in our lives.
I love and respect the art for its ability to speak to the heart, stimulate thought, and even transform minds."
