Poetry to Brighten Your Day

Hi lovelies! Something I sincerely hope you know about me by now: I enjoy poetry. Quite a bit, actually. I enjoy reading and I enjoy writing it, and I also enjoy listening to it - something I've learned only recently, since my discovery of poetry slams. I've found that when poets read their own work it adds a whole new dimension to the poems and there's a kind of music to it that makes the experience so much more rewarding. So I thought I'd share with you guys some of my absolute favourite slam poetry today! These poems are raw, inspirational, heartfelt, and honest, and I hope they brighten your day just a little bit. :) Enjoy!
