    I have an idea. How about we make a competition where once a week someone picks a topic and then we have to write a poem about it and whoever has the most liked poem wins.

    got a new poem cinderella and her prince. It is a happy poem for a change, about finding your love. Check it out and comment! I would really enjoy it. Light poems are kind of foreign to me.

    Poetry is my escape I guess. I love turning words in to something meaningful; it's my passion. I'm not going to beg people to read my works, but I'm just making people aware that they're there. Thanks for reading.

    Since the 80s, African
    readers and criticts
    have challenged the
    pride of Poetry over Play
    and Prose. The poetic
    art of the 80s and 90s
    celebrate a Nationalism
    obligation, traditional
    Black Africa and 'Political
    Poetry' with Poets like
    Wole Soyinka, J.P Clark,
    U Tam'si, Dennis Brutus,
    David Diop, Kwesi Brew,
    Birago Diop, Lepold Sedar
    Senghor and other
    traditional Black Africa
    Poet. It as since then
    become an unvoidable
    tone for developing
    Black Africa Poet. The
    20th Century Black
    Africa Poetry witness
    an overflow of
    Newbreed Poet; whom
    unarguably tactically
    promote a huge
    recognition for Africa
    Poetry at home and
    Abroad. The 21st
    Century African Poetry
    art experience a similar
    but shameful
    achievement due to the
    repetition of the boring,
    stale and annoying
    poetry imageries,
    structures and themes
    of the 80s and 90s
    which does not connote
    with todays atistic view
    of the World, being
    more literal, it's infact
    an 'old skol' approach.
    This tendecy as affect
    the Modern Africa
    Poetry to maintain it's
    superiority over Modern
    Prose and Play. Against
    the Poetry act of this
    generation, ArtBEAT is
    an highly welcome
    development by
    Owoade Adewale in the
    reconstruction of what
    we call today's Modern
    Poetry art. Its promising
    and dinstinguish
    attention to Young
    developing Poet is also
    an unavoided one. There
    is no doubt that
    ArtBEAT role as the
    loudspeaker for
    Newbreed Poet will
    contribute to the
    Celebration of
    Traditional Poetry with
    Modern Imageries,
    especially as at this
    time when an
    emergency concern is
    needed. ArtBEAT
    Anthologies, feauturing
    numberless Black Africa
    Young talented Poet will
    undoubtedly 'activate'
    Contemporary 21st
    Century Africa Poetry.
