I swear, I'm not a love poet.

6 Spoken Word Poems That Will Make You Believe In Love

Writers have been trying to put love into several different perspectives. Whether it's a novel format or through sonnets, love has been a topic that writers have been trying to get perfectly right since the beginning of time. One form that I'm particularly fond of is spoken word poetry. Spoken word poetry is kind of like the baby of theatre and writing. A writer goes on stage and recites their work with conviction and emotion. It's truly a beautiful thing to watch, and I think this form of poetry really helps people catch onto poetry even if they weren't particularly interested in it before. For the month of February, I've decided to focus on love poems. So without any further ado, these are my favorite spoken word love poems!

1. When Love Arrives by Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye

This poem is a beautiful duet between Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye. They both talk about their experiences with love, and how it can arrive in the most unexpected of places.

2. How to Love Your Introvert by Kevin Yang

Figuring out introverts can be kind of challenging, but I think Kevin explains this in a pretty beautiful way.

3. Crushes Suck and Everybody Knows It by Dominique Christina

This poem definitely reminds me of my very first crush. Even your first heartbreak can lead to finding the most important love of all: the love you have for yourself.

4. OCD by Neil Hilborn

If you have ever said, "I am so OCD!" please watch this and reconsider your word choice. This poem is not only completely heartbreaking, but Neil Hilborn brings a new perspective to OCD and how it affects relationships.

5. To The Boys Who May One Day Date My Daughter by Jesse Parent

This poem is so cute. If you want to read something that will make you smile, please watch this.

6. Love Poem Medley by Rudy Francisco

This is the love poem to end all love poems. Rudy Francisco has been one of my favorite spoken word poets simply because he is so passionate about his words. Each metaphor leaves me in awe, and I hope you like it too!

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
