Manaiakalani Film Festival - I am waiting



This spoken word poem was created during our poetry unit in the hub.

We began by building our knowledge of other spoken word poets on YouTube and hearing Joshua Iosefa perform his Brown Brother poem at our school. From this we were challenged to find our own voice as writers.

My aspiration was to speak out for those who couldn't speak for themselves and to empower others to find their voice and speak out against bullying. If you are being bullied, go to a trusted adult, friend, or teacher and tell them what is happening.

It's time to find your voice.
I am waiting...

Sebaan, that was a wonderful poem. You most certainly have a gift for poetry. I also think that you managed use video well and not overpower your voice. Well done on a fine composition and effectively sharing an important message.

Kia ora Sebäan,

Ka mau te wehi, tino pai tō mahi!

Very powerful spoken word poetry and performance, you continue to make us proud. I admire the way you utilised the many one hundred languages to confront concerning anti-social behaviour effectively.

Nurturing well-being of akōnga is the crucial foundation for their learning, growth of their capabilities and better educational and social pathways for the future.

Congratulations to you and your contributors. Kia kaha.

Love Mamon

Nice Poem guys and I like how you standed up for your self and never gave up to make friend . I get what your trying to say never give up because other people don't like you.
WELL DONE!!

Kia ora,
I like your poem so much, for my rating I will give you a 10 out of a ten because this meaning or moral is really powerful to everyone even people that do bully people. I have been bullied and it was the worst day of my life they say bad things about me and I just wait until they see how I feel. People need to know bulling is bad because those people that you bullies don't know what you might do to yourself, right.
I don't like bulling because I just don't like people hurting themselves and crying all day. I just want to stop everything. If someone bullies you and says change yourself, just say "I can be who ever I want" and just go talk to a sensible adult or person.

I like your one because this is good for the people that came and bullied someone in there life.

Hi, that was a really nice movie. Your right bullying shouldn't rule the world, I didn't know how bulling could be that bad. I used to be bullied when I was little so I know how bad it can get `really bad. Keep up the great work.
