This Is Why I Came is a new poem that I wrote as an introduction piece when I go out and speak. This is in its draft form in that I am reciting it in this video, and not performing it in front of a crowd. It is an intimate look at me in the writing process.
Please leave a comment. I would love to know how you’ve been impacted by the piece. Also, at the bottom of the video on youtube, you will find links to relevant blogs that may explain terms that you are unfamiliar with in the poem.
