Ayvaunn Penn Performs: “I’m In this World, but Not Of It” (Video)

In this video, Ayvaunn Penn performs a piece submitted to Your Black Poets by Jacqueline N’jai.  The poem is called “I’m in this World, but Not of It.”  In the poem, N’jai reminds all of us that we can live in the world and understand it, but not feel compelled to accept the things that fail to sit well with our spirits.  Penn does a remix of the poem, where she performs it in spoken word and also sings it.  The video is below and if you can’t see it, you can watch by clicking here.
