Today's Special Guest Chef is, Jacqueline Harris, aka Poetic J Harris.
"...I don’t really think it matters what I may have thought about it in the past. Truth is, I wasn’t writing and reciting for the right reasons back then. And that, nearly cost me my sanity and my freedom.
One may be prompted to ask why I continue writing and reciting poetry. Well, I do it because I can. Poetry is in me. But, I don’t do it for applause or fame. I will probably never make more than a buck doing it. So, bottom line, I just love it. Reciting poetry gives me an excuse to be someone I had never allowed myself to be before. When I am reciting my words, I can be unrepentantly myself. And even when I bomb on stage, I still know that what the audience gets from me when I am up there on stage is my all, each and every time.
So, if you want to be a modern day bard of the slam scene, do it for yourself. You need to write for you. Don’t worry about what others may think of you and don’t drive yourself crazy trying to please everybody. That’s free advice."
