What I learned at Elijah Brown's 30th Celebration

Jerry Gant gave out lessons to all us aspiring, and inspiring Jersey poets last night.  He basically told us that it is important that you leave your legacy in the hearts of your peers, and work to elevate your craft.  That's all that matters in the genre of spoken word.  I hear you brother; thanks for your contributions, and your lessons.
