What is Urban Poetry

What is Urban Poetry about you may  ask? Well, I decided because of the pass judgments and viewpoints of others about “The Hood"..."The Ghetto"..."The Streets" as being a place of only filth and darkness, that I would highlight the beauty and "LIGHT" coming from those very same streets. 

Blinded by a false illusion of whats deemed acceptable, many can't see the brilliance and innovation that comes from that which is deemed to have no value.


Remembering the words of Martin Luther, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that”. 

I understand life has purpose so, and so does Urban Poetry...it shall be my "LOVE" that drives out "Hate".  What do I plan to accomplish?...to provok thought through art and inspire someone else to be their own light in the darkness.
