My favorite poet would more than likely have to be Tupac Shakur. That may catch some people off guard but Tupac’s poetry really does speak from a certain perspective that not many people hear from. His poems speak for those who have trouble speaking for themselves. Those who feel lost, those who feel hopeless, those who need love and care sent their way. I k now that most people who know of Tupac may think of him as a rapper first but if you read his poetry and even some of the lyrics to his songs, some of his not so controversial works, you will get to see the type of person he really was. Reading his poetry has truly helped me get through some rough times in my life and has even helped a few people I know who are not fans of him or even knew who he was until being made aware of it later.
