Last weekend I had the pleasure to met Kate Tempest, I had never heard of Kates rhymes, lyrics, or poems. But just talking to Kate had me curious to hear her poems, as she radiates love and pure positive energy. As soon as I got home I began searching for her poems on youtube. I have selected some of my favourites. If like me you have never heard of Kate watchmthese videos and share. Her poetry tugged at my heart string and had me thinking more positivly about all aspects of life at the same time.
