There’s nothing as enjoyable as spoken word poetry in this life. Imagine how it must feel to have someone articulate what you feel and even take you to a different place. See ehn, it’s unfortunate, but lot of people will die without experiencing all the best things life has to offer. It’s just how the world is.

But if there’s one thing you should not miss, it is the eargasm that comes from spoken word poetry.

If you have ever listened to spoken word poetry, then you’ll get what we are saying. And if you have not, it might be time to hop on the train.
