I recently came across a YouTube channel that at first I didn’t really think much of: button poetry. I’ll admit I was not the biggest fan of poetry. And also I’m not that emotional. But watching these videos made me have to take a moment to collect myself after I had watched them. It has become one of my favorite things.
Considering that slam poetry has been around for a while now and is still growing in popularity, I am astonished that it took me this long to discover it and love it so much. And here in this channel on YouTube you find a vast range of ideas and topics filled with powerful messages, spoken by normal people. This will all leave you speechless. Here are the links to some of my favorites from button poetry.
And here’s some stuff the library has on slam poetry.
