I am at a slam poetry open mic check tonight. I am just blown away.
The first girl right off the bat starts with a moving slew of words.
She talks about a world where words like “faggot” are nonexistent. This moves me.
A world where hateful words don’t even matter or pierce the hearts of innocent people in search of love.
I never considered slam poetry to be a form of rebuking social hate towards gay people and gay marriage.
