Lately I’ve seen a few of these poetry slam videos floating around the internet, and one of them was posted by a friend who wrote, “The reason why poetry is meant to be heard, not just read.”
These poets make their words come alive, and don’t be surprised if one or both of them bring you to tears.
WARNING: The first video does drop the f-bomb once, so if you’re not comfortable with that, then certainly skip that one. I still felt it was beautiful and powerful enough to share. The second video talks about some heavy stuff dealing with the poet’s father being an alcoholic, so again, use your own discretion.
