“poetry isn’t going to save the world,
no art will
but it does, momentarily, stick a flower
in the garbage pile we have created”
You there, trying to find yourself, by bleeding words or simply absorbing them;
Trying to cling on to the familiar with a zest for the unknown;
Trying so hard to maintain balance that you look back and realize life has simply passed you by.
Take a chance on us, give us an afternoon. Take some time off, as we, together, celebrate the magic hidden in language .
Acrostic-The Poetry Society of SGTB Khalsa invites you to Fankaar - An English Poetry Slam .
