Over time, poetry has evolved from the traditional style of poetry to a very adorable style, where it is being spoken.
Now, poets now get to paint their art in the colour they choose, often using the stage as a page for their art. But not many poets are skilled in this new niche in poetry.

The inaugural poem that was read by 22 year old, Amanda Gorman on the inauguration day of Joe Biden as the President of United States of America, threw more spot light to the niche.
Though, Maya Angelou had also recited a poem on the inauguration of Bill Clinton as President on 20th January, 1993. But the power of social media helped to spread what Amanda Gorman did.
However, as much as many had wished and prayed for, there has been no work on spoken word poetry for one to learn from. You only had to look at others and perfect your art through theirs.
