SLAM POETRY

SLAM POETRY  click photo to see video of SLAM POETRY

For those of you who don’t know what SLAM POETRY is well it is like spoken word on steroids and really high energy. I as a poet and a man of God always struggled with performing spoken word that was judged by others in a competition, because I felt like it belittles the point of poetry. I have only now come to the realization that SLAM POETRY is a platform for those who are super serious about what they have to say. I personally dont perform for points, but to SPEAKLIFE into the atmosphere. If you want to step your delivery up and cut the fat off – I mean really perfect your craft SLAM POETRY is where its at (its fun to watch too).

MY BEST POEM

This might be my best poem 

or at the very least its the next poem

the one after the last one

I promise not to expound on how

blacks blood goes SPLAT!!!

on the ground when they blast guns

NO

over guttas and curbs

 before I utter a word

I’m a meditate…

remember when…

When I was in high School and I got a girl’s number I had to go home get my most polite and respectful voice together to call her, because her mother or her father could pick up the phone. Now teenagers have their own phone so when a boy gets a girls number he can call or text her directly with no filter theres no ,”OK I better get myself together, because the parent may pick up” thought process anymore.

Maya Angelou – A Great inspiration

I remember hearing how she would kindly escort guest from her home if they spoke in a negative way or was offensive to another person; I don’t know why but that stuck with me. Maya Angelou embodied poetry and her heritage is inspiration her legacy is: LIVE this life to its fullest! We will miss the wonderful spirit that was expressed in her every breath.
