I’m so honored to see my poem read by the UK based award winning songwriter and singer Tally Koren for the event ” Changing the Face of Poetry” on the occasion of World Poetry day. The event was live streamed on Facebook , YouTube and Instagram. Tally even composed a few verses of my poem “Survival is an Art” into a song and its was utterly beautiful and mesmerizing.
