An Evening Of Slam Poetry
SHEROES hosted a poetry slam night surrounding the topic of intimate partner violence. The session saw ten poetic performances which capsulized the environment to that of solidarity and understanding.
With swollen hearts and teary eyes the audience ushered the poets, who had through the medium of prose had vocalized feelings that would’ve been caught inside their souls to a group of people relating to those words as they hummed through the air. The event was graced by a feeling of hope and strength, and love.
“The entire session was emotionally charged, a feeling of surreality floating in the air
This Saturday night , SHEROES hosted a poetry slam
The theme of the night was intimate poetry slam
There were men and women, some holding hands.
Some distant in ways the oceans are from abyss to shore
The poetry session saw an uproar of poets
Using their words like swords in the battlefield of abuse.
Their bruises shined a crimson red, dripping out the centuries long of battles
They had fought inside themselves to stay quiet.
Until they stood there in a dimly lit conference room
In front of bunch of strangers who would witness their lifes hardest battles
Only to never see them again.
They stood there remembering people who left bruises for memoirs
They stood there in strength and hope
In pain and in love,
In an oblivion of a feeling that didn't sink too deep in the darkest pits of their hearts.
Both women and men alike holding their mikes
Their voices immediate yet singing a truth of hurt
Well atleast gender doesn't hold up a higher card against abuse.
Hand in hand with eyes moist
The slam ended in a hope for another one,
The group of strangers closer to each other than they'd feel with their own self."
