This week, we sat down with the founders of Poetry Namibia and asked them a few questions. Stay tuned to our Instagram Account for a sweet surprise later today.
Poetry Namibia was founded by Shen Nanyanga and he runs it with 2 co-founders, Patricia Uapunduka and Yamikani Mnthambala.
Poetry is a safe heaven. Home. It’s a home for my notebooks to finally be free. Poetry helps me survive, breathe.Poetry means everything to me. I respect it with all my being. It’s a passion not a talent
Poetry is not old, frail, and cerebral. Poetry is stronger and fresher than you think. Poetry is imagination. Poetry is a way of expressing feelings. Poetry is not only a dream and vision, it is a skeleton and its architecture is what we base our everyday lives on. It lays the foundation for a future of change, it’s a bridge across our fears.
Poetry is a universal language spoken by a select group of people that have something important to say. It’s not just scribbling 2 or 3 lines onto a piece of paper but it’s attaching heartfelt emotion to every empty space between words and echoing a message of love or fear voiced by every syllable and letter that spills out of a pen and into reality.
