Spoken Word Workshops

This week I wanted put some work on the Blog from a young person. This was written by a 14 year old boy that lives in Poplar. Below are some excerpts from his work:

I belong to God but the streets are pulling me away, everyday I find a way for the haters to pay, right now i got many lyrics to say…

…the streets full of trouble and haters. I’m trying to be good, I’m trying to be perfect in the neighbourhood, the neighbourhood I grow up in makes me sing the tings that makes me keep winning and I feel God is there but i just keep sinning.

This came out of a session based on the phrase ‘I belong to…..’. The young people explored this with a professional Spoken Word artist.
