the soul of an artist never dies, it gets recycled into new shades of black

On The Nature of Daylight – Max Richter

Poetry is more than scarred individuals rhyming words and moving their hands with religious fervor. It’s the expression of one’s very being into a medium that everybody can understand. Words are just tools to convey our emotions and hands provide the power to speak when the mouth is silent. MERGE, the spoken word/poetry club at UNC-Charlotte hosted an event where the happy and heartbroken came together. It was entitled “Thank Me Later” in reference to Drake’s freshman album, as well as the previous Thanksgiving holiday. The theme this time however was a satire of the word thanks, poets were asked to write about the things they were not thankful for. I’ll let the pictures and the poems speak for themselves.

So please understand why I find it very hard to believe that you’re with me, because God if you were how could you ignore those prayers
