So, I have a bit of an infatuation with spoken word/slam poetry. It’s a pretty intense form of expression sometimes, but that can make it very effective at getting a message across. Below is a video of a poem called, “Pretty” by Katie Makkai that talks about the way that women and girls define themselves with just the word pretty, or how they are not. Warning: There is some strong language used here, which is frequently the case with spoken word. If that’s not your thing, feel free not to press play. If not, let’s hear what Katie Makkai has to say.
Be more than just “pretty,” because you are.
