Life was set up to break me starting at the age of 4. Lost in my silence and tears I became a victim of my circumstances...

What does Google Say?

Looking for good vibes? Looking for a place where your voice can be heard? The Poetry Lounge is the place to be! It was the love, warmth, and welcoming vibes for me! I felt that just from texting the open mic line! And now we’re family! I made my first debut on stage at the Lounge. I felt encouraged and left excited about returning to the stage again. Not only did I perform but I was able to enjoy an awesome atmosphere with great music, a delightful host, dim lights and a relaxing Friday night after a long work week! And by the way… When Simone’ says “I can’t wait to meet you”; it’s not just a line, she means it! Come see for yourself! 💕
