I love the television series because not only it's about poetry, there's legendary poets I can learn from. I need to learn who came before me, so I have a better feel of how I should present my craft to the world... I have a unique style of bringing my poems to life, but I wanna learn how to be a "Master Poet" even better, The Queen of Poetry! I want people to know that poetry is still in the performing world, even though it's being overshadowed by rap. I want to remind people why poetry is important! This is a must see!!!!
