Passion Proposal

“Poetry is a necessity of life. It is a function of poetry to locate those zones inside us that would be free, and declare them so.”
-C.D. Wright

The way her voice shakes when she speaks
She could move mountains with the sheer stutter of her tongue
She is the reason your heart beats out of rhythm
The way her voice makes your soul quiver with the salience of her words
You will forget the world
But the world is in the eyes of the voice
The voice with the stutter of your heart

She is the poem of your heart


Poetry is the basis of my sanity. As my mental instabilities worsen I always turn to written word. As my passion, my lifesaver, my friend, poetry has saved my life. I want to help others find this release in a time of need. Without poetry, I feel my life would be very different than it is now. Poetry is my life.

For my passion study I will be working on my poetry. I will use Button Poetry and books such as David Escobar’s. I want to learn how to perform spoken word, these resources should help. For my project, I need to learn the elements of spoken word. I also want to use this as a way to practice writing in other forms.

The viability of my pitch is not based off of others, my pitch revolves around how I feel about poetry. So, my pitch is viable because it makes me happy.
