Did you know that @HumanExperienceLV moved? They’re now housed at Ninja Karaoke! When the Beat closed, many of us felt lost and upset. Having HE switch locations was really difficult. This time around, I think we may be ready for change. Check out the new venue! Remember YOU create the vibe! #humanexperience#poetry#spokenword#openmic#lasvegaspoets#eatmoreartvegas

The boy basked in the sweet sun that life set before him.
Only knowing sunny skies, he was Unprepared for when the day came to a close and the amber in the atmosphere disappeared.
So when the sun set,
he was alone and entrenched in the cold of night.
Placed into a dark world that was frightening and unrelenting.
The boy was forced to struggle for new shelter.
However, he was not alone in his challenge for survival.
The moon lit his way and the stars showed him a map that guided his journey.
These new allies were what allowed the boy to press on.
Eventually, the young man learned to take comfort in the darkness.
Realizing that the light never truly disappears.
He rose above his fears and inhibitions to master the light and the darkness.
However, he also learned, as he looked upon the brightly paved streets before him, with warmth once more caressing his face, that
Even in the darkest of moments,
Even in the longest and coldest of nights,
The Sun, it too, also rises. .
