With over 140,000 poems on PowerPoetry.org it’s impossible to pick a favorite. But after scouring the site we’ve managed to pick some that have that special oomph- a line of inspiration, a deep personal story, or ones that are just LOL funny. Here are our top 10 favorite poems (right now) on PowerPoetry, in no particular order.
2013 has been the year of viral slam poetry. At Power Poetry we’re thrilled that young poets are having their voices heard—especially since folks like Paul Krugman seem to think that poetry is dead (wut?). But we did notice that none of the 2013’s viral poems were written or performed by women of color. And that’s something we want to change with these seriously kicka** poems.
