As a poet/spoken word artist, it is my responsibility and honor to use my wisdom, experiences and trials to encourage and teach others. I believe it does the world a grave disjustice when we learn a thing or a better way and fail to share it. As a child of God, it is mandatory that I use my gifts so that others have a chance to know God like I know Him. So I speak life. And so do my fellow poets. We all give of ourselves through words. We are versatile in many ways but the common thread between us is that we don't just witness life, we impact it.
