Poetry is a unique tool that allows writers to channel thoughts into words in expressing views, emotions, beliefs, and life experiences. It is also a powerful forum in showcasing the importance of freedom of speech.
Emotions released by the poets were passionate and honest, as some words were spoken with anger as these poets fully invested their souls into their poetry.
The topic mainly focused on the current state of our economy, government, world issues, rights of the people and the truths left out by the mainstream media.
Arts were also displayed by local artists such Dru Cruz, Marukh, Angel Perez, Ruler, Ramsey Oh, Coalition of Activists, Jamie O' hara.
