Heal the Divide: Four Poems, by Taijee Bunch

Blog, Heal The Divide, Plays

Every week we will be sharing new plays by our Heal the Divide playwrights.  This week’s play is Four Poems, by Southern Arkansas University student Taijee Bunch, a playwright from Lonoke, AR.

I was inspired to write this play at an ASTEP (Artist Striving To End Poverty) open mic night.  I wanted to re-create that moment. I also wanted to address the concern that we don’t listen to each other enough to understand that we all go through similar problems. We all just need a timeout. A time to listen and focus back in with each other and most importantly heal. Four Poems follows four artists whose names represent their problem/solution of their individual lives: Oppression, Fear, Boundaries, and Healing to bring us back into reality that we can create change together not against one another. I hope you enjoy!
