This is the complete poem performed Friday by Sierra DeMulder of St. Paul's Soap Boxing slam poetry team at the semifinals of the National Poetry Slam. Her poems give me goosebumps.

I loved the way Sierra performed this poem! I kind of gave me goosebumps also. What really got me was the part where everyone gasped. She showed so much pain in that sentence.

Sierra DeMulder is my favorite poet! She adds so much emotion and life to each poem she writes and performs. I missed her last year at Writers Week and it is my goal to see her! I can only imagine the power she has in person.

This gave me goosebumps to! I don't think it would surprise anyone that I love this video! Its so sad and makes me think about life and people and who they are and why they are who they are. Thank you so much for putting this video up because it was amazing!

She speaks so powerfully and I love it! I really admire her passion, and ability to pull and grab at your heart!

I cannot believe that I missed her last year at writers week!  I hope that Sierra will return to speak to us once again, and in the passion that she brings whenever she is performing.  What she does is not speak, it is an art form; rather like acting, or storytelling.

I love this! Sierra DeMulder is such a talented poet and I was very fortunate to see her at Writers Week. She is so young and has an enormous amount of potential, I'm glad to say that I got to see her preform!

Sierra DeMulder is an incredibly talented poet and speaker! It's the power she puts behind each and every single word, and the impact she makes with each profound sentence, that really distinguish her as a slam poet. I love how, not only this video, in every poem she does th meaning and message of what she is trying to get across is evident no matter what!

This is the first time I have seen Sierra DeMulder perform! She is such a talented and amazing poet/orator. Each words she utters has a definition and has a place in her poem. She chooses a tone that fits with the context of her piece adding to the overall meaning. I hope I can see her next year!!!

Sierra Demulder really knows how to put a message out there. Every word she says conveys a powerful message and she is an amazing performer and her words affect anyone who hears them.
