Please Resist Me cover art

I bumped into this amazing and inspiring poem and video by Luka Lesson yesterday entitled Please Resist Me. Luka Lesson is an accomplished Australian Poetry Slam Champion, conscious Hip-Hop artist, and co-founder of The Center for  Poetics and Justice. In this poem Luka Lesson speaks to the indomitable and universal spirit of the world’s youth, which by nature continues to challenge the entrenched power structures and oppressive beliefs that seek to silence, limit and ostracize our voices and lives. This video voices a collective resound from our globe’s youth, please resist me, but your resistance only makes my passions burn more intensely and makes my insights more perceptive. Luka Lesson recently released a new album also entitled Please Resist Me, which can be listened to and downloaded here. To learn more about Luka Lesson’s work visit and see the links at the bottom of this piece. In closing, lets support the artist,  activists and leaders that are dedicated to making our world a better place! Let your voice be heard, share this post, drop a comment, buy an album, start building!
