Thunder Clap

Kate Tempest is a spoken word poet and rapper who is the youngest person by 30 years to have been awarded the Ted Hughes Award for poetry. And those are AF1s. Reading her stuff genuinely makes me think i should go back to school and relearn how to speak my own language.

She's published a collection of her stuff called Everything Speaks In Its Own Way.

In it is a poem called The 13 Commandments.

Number eleven is this.

The greatest rewards aren't those you can see, touch or smell or taste. You might say the greatest rewards are the feelings that grow inside you when you act in the right way.


So in one sentence she's pretty much made life, or at least how we should live it, make sense.

Shit might even be heavier than the Nike Air Flight OGs that toppled the Berlin Wall back in '89.
