The Rise of the Poets

The social media has been blowing up with aspiring authors and poets around the world these last few months and they keep on growing and evolving as time goes on. It is amazing to see how words can bring the community of writers and nonetheless the whole world together. Their work is absolutely pure, honest, realistic and optimistic at the same time and written in such sense that any person around the world can feel a relation with the writers work. The support is astonishing from everyone around the world towards these writers, I can see no other reason for the fact that they make you feel; no, they make you know, you belong.

I am sure you have come across a lot of images with quotes and sayings on it that you felt you relate so much to it that you saved it to your device and shared it on your social media platforms. Names like R.M Drake, Anita Krizzan, Jessica Katoff, J. Kenneth Banks, Michael Faudet, and Christopher Poindexter have been trending all around the world.

R.M Drake

R.M Drake who is located in Miami, has 718k followers on Instagram and continues to grow. He writes about everything in relation to life: love, freedom, chaos, pain and the art of letting go. Even celebrities like Khloe Kardashian reposts his images on her Instagram account. I bet if you go to the ‘Explore’ tab on Instagram now, you will see his work on your feed.

Anita Krizzan

Her work represents everything she loves about life. Her belief in the beauty of love between the man and woman, hope and her optimistic
view about life. Truly inspiring.

Jessica Katoff

When Jessica started posting her work on Instagram, she only had 9 followers; she has grown to a whopping 2k within only a few weeks. “I started writing these poems to bleed dry the pain of a love lost”, says Jessica in one of her posts to show gratitude towards her followers. The emotion of pain can clearly be felt when you read her poems, also, because we all have suffered a certain and the exact type of pain as Jessica has and that is why her work moves people the way it does.

J. Kenneth Banks

This Australian writer (and super adorable, I just had to throw that in), also a lover of life and love, a believer of the beauty in life’s little things and a true optimist-realist. Every Friday he has a competition called “Free Shit Fridays”, where he gives away a signed poem you shared, but obviously ‘terms and conditions’ apply. Give him a follow to see how to win.

Michael Faudet

He is the writer, poet and author of ‘Dirty Pretty Things’- There is only one quote from him that describes his work hands down: “Words are powerful things. They can break hearts and make panties wet.” You can expect a lot of that, his use of words is truly amazing!

Christopher Poindexter

His famous quote: “And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love could heal our brokenness.” Which has possibly reposted more times than I could count, but is also a piece that describes his work. His use of words describing a woman’s- and his own feelings, the love of the moon and stars, also the pain and the art of letting go. He too, gives away signed copies of the poems you like. Follow him to see how you could win.

These poets, authors and writers’ work and writing style are all very diverse which is what makes them all unique. However, their love for writing and their belief in love, life and pain are things they all have in common. By that, they move the world as one community who relates to all of their work.

I highly recommend that you go and check them out, you will get another sense of seeing life as it is.

There are plenty of other poets out there that need support too. Just type in #poets or #poetsofinstagram on your ‘Search’ tab and well, enjoy!
