He's spot on. Have you discovered Taylor Mali?

Speak with Conviction

This guy is awesome.

I tried to say exactly the same thing (albeit very ineptly) to my Young Women some years back in a YW activity "How to Give a Talk in Church".

His website bio here:
Taylor Mali is one of the most well-known poets to have emerged from the poetry slam movement and one of the few people in the world to have no job other than that of poet. Eloquent, accessible, passionate, and often downright hilarious…
