It’s my name! Say it right!

This poetry seems like spoken word to me (Jill). Have you heard of spoken word?
Spoken word according to wikipedia is a “performance art that is word-based. It usually tends to focus on the words themselves, the dynamics of tone, gestures, facial expressions, and not so much on the other art forms. In entertainment, spoken-word performances generally consist of storytelling or poetry”
Names are important! Hiwot passionately conveys the importance of pronouncing her name correctly. She relays that her name is connected to important history and worth of her family.
Doesn’t she do a great job?
What are you passionate about? Could you relay that passion into poetry like this?
