About a year ago me and my friend Lisa Maldonado thought of a great idea, to create a poem and one day perform it at a slam as a two woman operation. We decided to create a poem about our love for poetry. So we came up with the name "She is Poetry" this name reflects our love for the art and how we view poetry as a “strong woman who saves the day”. But in reality we are the strong young women who are saving ourselves with this gift to create poetry.
We both have different styles of writing so,instead we decided to create two separate pieces. I created "She is Poetry" and Lisa created "She is Poetry 2”.
