Hello, my name is Anna,
or "Blue" if you please.
I am a poet and so is,
Zach, Corbin, Harrison, and Kenji.
We have a passion,
a will to write,
and I don't think you have the right to stop us.
You say that we were just kids who searched for misery,
and you say that boys aren't fit to write poetry.
But those four men I just introduced,
are in my eyes so much stronger than you.
Yes I am a girl,
so call me a hypocrite,
but I'm finding it ironic,
that you think these men,
would have a problem with you.
Maybe you're the little boy inside,
look we get it, wont you just apologize?
Do you know how much effort,
that they put into their work?
I promise you,
that to me they're lifesavers,
They're believers, they're creators,
and all around life changers.
They take me away from this reality,
and pull me into their wonderful poetry.
I can't help but fall in love with their words on the paper,
losing myself in their iambic pentameter.
No matter what words you use or say,
you will never take that beauty away.
You say because they write they are not strong,
I have one thing to say to that, you're wrong.
They're proud of who they are, of what they write,
and they grace me with all of their brilliant insights.
So say what you say, but I've got some words of advice,
real men? They know how to write.

Woo....I finally finished.

Here is my rant-like slam poem...

I was angry at how people say that boys shouldn't write poetry and how it's for depressed/angsty people who are downright sissies.

I hope you 4 that I mentioned don't mind that I used my names....you were just the 4 people I thought of. ^^It also just made the poem even more personal...:)

I hope I got the right message across.


(I know I don't always put this under my works but...please don't take them without my permission...^^)

Holy. Crap. This is fantastic!! I've always wished I could write slam poetry better. You do it so well!! And you're TOTALLY right. Writing is so sexy in a man, I hate it when people tell them that it's "gay" or "stupid" and make them feel horrible for doing what they love. Preach it, girl! :Heart:

Oh, of course, it really angered me when I heard someone bashing male poets. I know so many wonderful poets who are male and so many who were....I just really wanted to show my appreciation for their work. :)

Men shouldn't write poetry?!
Who said that?!
Lemme at 'em!!! :iconragefaceplz:

What about great poets like Robert Frost, Shakespeare, and Edgar Allan Poe!!

Great male poets. U_U
Being able to share emotions is a strength not a weakness.
