Thanks so much for sharing. I laughed and then I bawled my eyes out. Our society can be so ridiculously f-ed up. I am going to post that last line right in front of my desk as a constant reminder.

That was really amazing! I am so in awe of some of these slammers (that's what they're called, yes?) I was watching an HBO special called "Brave New Voices" a few days ago and I was blown away by the talent of these kids! Poetry Slams are frickin awesome.

We are all so much more than our bodies & clothes. (Although I really do like clothes).

So glad it spoke to you all too. The part that made me get a huge freaking lump in my throat is when she started talking of her future daughter.
