Champions Reign Supreme is the first publication for spoken word artist, Karyzma. An eclectic collection of poems, this anthology gives voice to various life experiences and chimes in with social commentary on universal themes and everyday issues. This work provides both entertainment and upliftment as each poem is accompanied by a short reflective narrative sharing with readers the story behind the poem. Each reflection provides insight regarding the events, experiences, and/or individuals who inspired their lines. Karyzma emphasizes that despite life’s hardships, any satisfaction, success, or glimpse of happiness to be enjoyed, is first derived from a stubborn effort to keep rising to the occasion of this precious, yet sometimes challenging journey.
