This week, we go beyond poetry.
Because I didn't start writing about the good in the world - I started speaking up because change is necessary.
I know all you guys are feeling it, so I'm bringing a political tone to episode 2 :
I bring you 3 incredibly educated, and caring souls, to speak justice, humanity, and how to make a difference 🤘
