There are many nay sayers these days. They will tell us that we are in a irreversible death spin, that our proud culture will fall and our most treasured possessions, even the one's we love, will be lost in the clamoring for money and worldly goods.
My friends, we at World Poetry Open Mic do not share this belief. We believe that while life can be confusing, frightening and down right difficult, it is, however slowly, getting better. That there is hope for the world.
This is where poetry comes in. Through the use of words, rhyme and rhythm, we open the windows to the deepest parts of us where we experience torment, loneliness, wonder and that which is now needed most of all:
World Poetry Open Mic is more than just a radio show. It is about building a community of poets and spoken word artists that openly share for those who are willing to listen. It is about letting those who listen know that they are not alone in the madness that we call this life. This show is about exposing to the world what it needs most.
We hope that you enjoy learning a bit more about our show is these few quick pages. However, to really understand what it is that we do, we invite you to tune in here on Friday evenings, from 8-9 pm (Mtn) and listen to the beautiful, profound and sometimes silly ways in we which we deal with reality and express our hope for a better future. In fact, why not call in and share something yourself? You'll be glad you did.
Yours in hope,
Michael Amidei Producer & Co-Host World Poetry Open Mic
