    As with anything concerning social media and the proliferation of an internet-centric culture, Insta-poetry is treated with the usual package deal approach of hate and love. Despite the abundant successes and enthusiastic fanbases of poets such as Rupi Kaur, Lang Leav, Amanda Lovelace and Yrsa Daley-Ward, a creeping sense of disapproval veins through it all. … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/is-insta-poetry-the-death-of-real-poetry-or-a-rebirth/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    I have a habit of saying “I hate everything” but that tends to be incredibly far from the truth. One afternoon I actually sat and thought about things that I love. It brought so much happiness. Thinking about things you love is healthy, never let the negativity overpower the positivity. I often say I hate … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/the-beauty-of-hating-everything/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

This poem is about the misconception … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/how-to-love/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    I hold the world in my hands, cautiously. Fearing its destruction or slightest disfigurement. I wrap my feeble little fingers around the world, shielding it from the horrors of my race. But I fail. I fail and I disappoint. The deeds of those more powerful than me abuse the very hands identical to them. They … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/so-be-it/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    This is a poem is inspired by today’s society. The destruction we do to ourselves and each other is heartbreaking. We fight and kill each other as if we are nothing more than wild animals fighting for our own needs without having consideration for others. After reading this, I hope it opens your eyes and … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/a-letter-to-humanity/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read
