Kari O'Connor is a longtime spoken-word artist an award-winning National Poetry Slam performer. She likes to write positive poems, because "it's really easy to write from a place of depression." Positive poems, she says, can also come from a place of negativity, too. Her poem, titled "A Name," is a love poem for someone she has not yet met.
