is the truth
My passion has clouded my clarity
bulging cloud formations
Beautiful, passing, plump
Everything up to this point
directed me to a warm moment of panic
a painful relief
I have not been touched
with such tender assurance
than when I was
The sweet prize was
disguised as a goal –
something to aim for
when the Truth was having
a barrel to look through
Here’s a short documentary put together by some Humber College students (2013) Special Thanks to Julia Rogers.
Britta B. performing “The Girl I Wanted To Be” for the 1st time at Trane Studio,
downtown Toronto on Sunday, October 16th, 2011
Here’s a clip of me sharing some poetry recently with ~300 grade nines in London, ON. I wrote this poem while I was on tour last year and I think it took me the whole year to write. I don’t really think it’s any of my best writing but it definitely broke the ice for more brilliant pieces to come.
Feel free to repost the link in your FaceBook, Twitter, et al. social networking webpages. And be on the lookout for more Britta B. videos in the future!
Thanks for watching,
