Talent can’t be boxed up neatly – it thrives when it is not led. Which is why I was so delighted to find out that the poet and musician Qui Qarre has come out with “Tears of the Pen” a dedication to her art through the magic of words.
My intention on #TearsOfThePen At first was to Express myself. To put my thoughts, stories, poems and ideas out there.
After the book was released, I realized it wasn’t just for me, but for every young person out there with big dreams. #TearsOfThePen pic.twitter.com/Y1PeZPbboL

Watch her performance on The Trend:
We keep stressing, if you want to consume the art that someone has worked so long and so hard to produce then purchase it. It’s a small token for the years that go into perfecting a craft
