    I'll Get There

    I'm fairly new to the land of poetry.  It's personal, and universal, and captivating. I'm driving down this road cautiously, lest I have any unfortunate collisions, for which I am uninsured. But I am drawn, and I am coming, even if it takes half of forever to hobble there...

    Spoken Word is such a beautiful art form

    and I believe that anyone can be a part of it and create a piece of work. I've been actively participating in local slams and plan to perform at local talent shows this year. I'm so excited and proud to be doing what I love while stepping outside the box and my comfort zone.
