Harry Baker is an inspiration to me
He is a young poet, having recently finished his studies in Math and German at the University of Bristol
His love for Math and rapping lead him to write his first slam poem called “59”, a love poem about prime numbers which he still performs to this day as one of his most popular poems.
Today, I was reminded by his genius through his performance of “Real Men”
Here is an excerpt:
I envy his ability to use his passion in a positive way. He writes poems about relatable topics to inspire people like me and equally performs them in an inspirational way. But even more amazing is he found a way to share his passion in a unique way. He likes Math, and he likes rapping, and by sticking those two together he was introduced to poetry and used it as his medium of exchange. He now does poetry for a living.
I can’t help to wonder how we can use our talents and passions to do the same…how we can take our passions or hobbies and turn them into something more. Perhaps some of us just haven’t found a unique way to mash our skills together yet, but I am sure we can all find our own poetry.
Right now, I am trying to mash up my love for magic and business…I am not yet quite sure what the product will be.
