Using poetry as a medium and my voice as the instrument, there are so many things I would love to see accomplished in my life. I have always spoken of my love for poetry and this year, I challenged myself to exercise my voice through this medium. Way past the four walls of my bedroom and the supportive ears of my friends and family alone. To push myself, invest in myself and to stand in my own self.
All that to say, I dedicate this cheeky weekly fav to an upcoming ‘Verse and Prose Presents – VS: A Spoken Word Competition’.
Verse and Prose is a Christian Creative organisation, which focuses on Spoken-Word Poetry. With aims to-
- Encourage people to live out their creative dreams by stepping outside of the norm,
2. Introduce and showcase up and coming poets,
