NEW LOCATION for HawaiiSlam's First Thursdays

January 4, 2016 at 04:57PM

We’re moving to a new location!!  Join us this Thursday (January 7th) at Hawaiian Brian’s for a top-notch installment of First Thursdays!!  The new space is located at 1680 Kapiolani Boulevard (on the 2nd floor). Hawaiian Brian’s is a premier performance space, and we will be in the large Crossroads concert hall. Parking is $2 if you stay for less than 4 hours, and $5 flat if you stay longer. There is plenty of street parking in the area as well (note, if you street park or walk/bike/bus, enter through the 24 Hour Fitness lobby on Kapi`olani and walk up the stairs). As always, this HawaiiSlam show will be hosted by Kealoha and will feature:

-- Jason Bayani, a veteran of the National Poetry Slam scene who has been a member of 7 National Poetry Slam teams and has been a National Poetry Slam finalist. He is the author of "Amulet" from Write Bloody Press. Bayani is an MFA grad from Saint Mary's College, a Kundiman fellow, and is currently the program manager for Kearny Street Workshop, the oldest multi-disciplinary Asian Pacific American arts organization in the country.
-- An official qualifier for the 2015-2016 HawaiiSlam season. Normal slam rules apply, and the top two poets will advance to the 2016 Grand Slam Finals (on April 7th, 2016) that will determine HawaiiSlam’s 13th National Poetry Slam team. Winner of this qualifier slam receives $100.

Know the fruit of your labor is your labor of love. If you know that, no one can take that from you. When you recognize that, know your worth is eternally internal, not external. When we sow bountifully, we will reap bountifully and bear much fruit that is far bigger than ourselves, what is in our posessions. No earthly riches can fulfill what Father God can. When someone cannot see we are highly favored and the harvest coming our way, know that for him or her though seeing, do not see. Keep on moving and recognize we have more than enough. We need not another person's approval for the fruit of our labor that bears much fruit. Be glad and rejoice for this is the Day that the Lord has made called Today. Know that Father God approves of us, our work ethic and dedication. It is you who Father God is well pleased.

Be bold! When a topic is controversial and you feel strongly about it, be unafraid to speak out in public even when in error. Most of us don't care about how politically correct a person can be over how authentic and real he or she is. It's how we learn from one another as long as we're appropriate to one another. Most of the time when we are in error we learn more. That does not mean to be intentionally in error like a troll would be, but it is good to give our best effort to speak out on tough and sensitive topics. No one cares if we are always right. Even a mathematically cannot always be right, but that mathematician will find a way to learn from his or her math errors. If you only spoke out when you are right, then you will not grow into tackling tougher topics. The moment you feel you need to stay silent on tough issues is the moment you've allowed yourself to be passive about an issue that does concern you. We have a voice for our generation. Be that voice. Use your voice. Be passionate and use your voice to advocate on the topics you want to be heard.
