    Discovering Discovery

    I discovered the beauty of Spoken Word Poetry last night. Literally, one day before I found out that this was an actual thing. I was playing with my new Logitech G35 Headset and discovered that I really like the sound of my recorded voice. Bearing that in mind, I took it upon...

    One Of My First Poems.

    Well, I got into freestylin' abit, then I saw Brave New Voices, and I fell in love with the energy and emotion that was portrayed through speaking it. So, I eventually started writing. I don't feel more at peace than when words that truly mean something to me are flowing out...

    So Much That I'd Like You Guys to Have a Taste of It.

    I call it "I Think This One's For You".  I'm sure it's not much and is more exemplified if I say it.  I also realize that punctualization and capitalization isn't right, but hayyyy, it's poetry [:   so here i am on the ground waiting for...

    Another Spoken Word Poem I Love

    What Are You Dying For I would stand to miss the fists on the battlefield Among an army of red and an army of blue And I stand tall and true As I ask you What are you fighting for? This four foot by four foot concrete block You’re arguing for and bartering for Is merely a...

    What Is Left

    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...

    It's Not Just How It's Written

    It's how it's read aloud too. You can give two different people the same poem to read out loud, and the poems can be projected in two completely different ways, just on how the reader says everything. I love hearing poems read with conviction, and passion, and emotion. It...

    I Haven't "spoken" This Yet But I'd Like Some Feedback Nonetheless "i Will Follow You"

    I will follow you.Like a lost puppy whining for a scrap of attention. I will sit up and beg for a morsel of affection.There was time when you held me close. When I lay in your loving embrace, rocked to sleep by your chorus of "I love you's" mixed with the steel-drum beat of my...
