Good day people. Today's post is not one I am really proud to share, but must share all the same. If I knew I was gonna be on camera, I would have composed myself and gesticulated better, instead of standing like a statue. It was my first poetry reading ever. I recited my poem, Myopia. It was on blog last year and generated a lot of comments but it has been taken down.
Apart from my 10 year old birthday video when I was jumping up and down, I have never really watched myself on camera. I don't think I like the way my mouth moves sha, lol. I watched it and was like 'is this how I talk in real life?' I just had to cover my eyes.
This is a poetry reading session is called Loudthotz Poetry reading. It takes place every second Thursday of the month. I attended in January and really loved it, but was too ill to go for February's own. By the grace of God, I won't miss that of march. Join me there, if you can. I believe anyone that writes poems should be there to meet people of like minds. It is organized by Independent Poet Concerns.
Enjoy the video.
