Poem of the week! “Khaleesi”


Happy Thursday!!! I think you guys are going to love the selection for this edition of poem of the week. “Khaleesi” by Tonya Ingram and Venessa Marco is a powerful piece. The performance is strong, their voices are strong and their message is definitely strong. Get the idea? Yeah, strong.

“I learned to be quiet when the anvils of a false prophet mistook my thirteen for playground.” Powerful performance.

Follow Tonya & Venessa on twitter and be sure to let them know how much you love their work!
