Inspiration: Sarah Kay and Catalina Ferro

Have you ever heard of Sarah Kay? I haven’t until today when I was googling some slam poetry and came across her perfomance of this poem. I have a hard time with performance because I get all nervous and such, but she seems so calm and collected. Definatley an inspiration. Plus I love the content of this poem because I’ve recently moved across the country to Spokane and I miss my mom 😦 (I’ll be back in Milwaukee in 18 days!!!)

Also, if you want to cry, watch this poem by Catalina Ferro. So moving.

  1. Hmm…I really enjoyed the Sarah Kay performance! Thank you so much for sharing, that was spectacular!!
    The second one, however, just wasn’t for me I guess. I’m puzzled, it evoked emotion, so I know it is quality artwork, but I just didn’t like it. It seems to have inspired something though, so thank you again. πŸ™‚

    • Catalina is just so fierce and the way she describes being an orphan through images really struck me. I am in love with Sarah Kay as well. She’s so young but her poetry says something profound. I love it.
