Happy National Poetry Month

, , No Comments
Hello, everyone! It is now (already??!!!) April and since it is National Poetry Month, I thought I'd share some of my favourite spoken word poems with some of my favourite lines from each. If you have a favourite that you'd like to share, do leave a link in the comments. I love finding new artists. :)

I hope you guys all have a lovely Easter weekend!

Sarah Kay – If I Should Have a Daughter (it's an awesome TED Talk, too!)
"There'll be days like this
there'll be days like this, my momma said"

Anis Mojgani – Shake the Dust
"So when the world knocks at your front door
Clutch the knob tightly and open on up
And run forward and far into its widespread, greeting arms
With your hands outstretched before you
Fingertips trembling, though they may be"

Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye – When Love Arrives
"Love is not who you can predict.
Maybe Love is not ready for you.
Maybe you are not ready for Love(...)
Maybe Love stays.
Maybe Love can't.
Maybe Love shouldn't."

Rudy Francisco – Love Poem Medley
"That invest in me kind of love, 
because you already know that I’m invested in you kind of love. 
That you come home upset, 
you don’t have to say nothing, 
I already know what to do kind of love."
