We belong to the world

We belong to the world

“The only thing that really lasts is the energy on Earth, because when you breathe out the plants breathe in, then the plants breathe out & the cycle starts again.”–An excerpt from “Mirrors” by IN-Q, National Poetry Slam champion, award-winning poet, & multi-platinum songwriter

Mirrors | A Poem by IN-Q

We’re never lost if we can find each other

We’re never lost if we can find each other

Facebook App

Never Lost illustrates the idea that as humans we are never truly lost as long as we can connect to each other.
Its montage of deserted streets, people finding new ways to connect during social distancing and COVID-19 Facebook posts is set to an extract from a very moving spoken word poem by British poet, Kate Tempest, called People’s Faces that was published last year on Vevo and is underscored by a stark and soulful piano track.

Lyrics to People’s Faces
Was that a pivotal historical moment
We just went stumbling past?
Here we are
Dancing in the rumbling dark
So come a little closer
Give me something to grasp
Give me your beautiful
Crumbling heart
We’re working every dread day that is given us
Feeling like the person people meet
Really isn’t us
Like we’re going to buckle underneath the trouble
Like any minute now
The struggle’s going to finish us
And then we smile at all our friends
Even when I’m weak and I’m breaking
I’ll stand weeping at the train station
‘Cause I can see your faces
There is so much peace to be found in people’s faces

I love people’s faces
