Spoken Word Poetry

 London Capture6

I have officially done my first ever spoken word event at the Canvas Cafe near Brick Lane in London for Mad Poets Speak!!!

Since I was in primary school I have written poetry and fallen in love with it’s language and the way we can use words to express emotions and thoughts turning them into something unique and beautiful.

Yesterday was the first time I have ever got up in front of others and read out my work, and though it was nerve racking it was an amazing experience.

The theme was mental health and the poems others read were incredible and so relatable, hearing others share their wonderful work and their experiences really did in my eyes help break the stigma.

I hope to discover more spoken word events and also events speaking on mental health.
