Poetry as a Part of Me

Hello beautiful people! It is me, Destynie, here yet again. I’m sure most of you or maybe none of you know about my passion for poetry. I’ll give you a bit of back story, I started writing fantasy fiction back in 3rd grade and continued all up until college. I was inspired not only by my peers but by a Pittsburgh-based poet, Jan Beatty. Her poem, “Modern Love” was a catalyst for my poetry. I especially inspired by Beatty because a lot of her works pushes the envelope and tends to make people uncomfortable; in my opinion, that’s admirable.  Ever since I’ve discovered the liberation of spoken word, I couldn’t stop writing. With that being said, I’m here to share with all of you a quick video of me reciting my poem entitled, “The White Man’s Problem.” Enjoy!
