Thanks to Eric from Catalyst Community for recording my performance on Saturday night (3/13)! I had a blast, and I hope to be back for more mic flow soon! Enjoy the vids!

Last weekend, I was hangin' with some friends at the Catalyst Community, a nonprofit organization out in Long Beach, and I spit my new poem, "Self-Construction," for them. The next thing I knew, I was being shoved (lovingly) into a corner of the kitchen area and told the piece needed to be on video "NOW!" according to author and motivational speaker Lacey C. Clark, who hooked this video up for me. It has become a very important poem in my collection because it talks about the incessant inner-realm work we all have to do on ourselves in order to be our best selves, and how, sometimes, we just don't wanna do it, yet there's no way around it. I hope you enjoy it!
