Micah Bournes

I never intended to write poetry about justice issues. I was just writing about life. I was just telling my story and the stories of people I met. About my experiences as a Black man in America. About a homeless man I met who told me he didn't have a name. The themes of justice just appeared naturally as I created art that reflected the world I live in. 

I'm excited  for The Justice Conference New Zealand. I'm on a mission to raise an army of poets, so I'm hoping to find some people who've been writing in secret and encourage them to share their poetry with the community, and maybe even inspire others to start writing poetry.
