Welcome to Inquire Within with me, IN-Q, a poetry podcast that brings you on a journey to the center of your soul through the lens of myself and some of the greatest poets and artists of our time. I'm an award-winning poet, bestselling author, multi-platinum songwriter, and named to Oprah's SuperSoul 100 list of the world's most influential thought leaders. I’m excited to bring you deep conversations to contemplate spiritual ideas and universal issues with other poets, as well as share my own poems and life lessons. No matter the episode, you'll always be challenged to inquire within.

Episode Date
Afterlife (An Unheard Poem) + Using Curiousity to Find Your Purpose
In this episode of Inquire Within, I share an unheard poem that challenges you to think about your life’s purpose. Here’s a sneak peek…
If you don't know what your purpose is
Tell me what your passion is
Don't know what your passion is?
It's where inspired action is
It's what enthusiasm gives
A manual for how to live…
With each episode I leave you with a prompt to write on and for the episode, I would like you to write a poem around around your life purpose. Set 20 minutes on the timer and explore it with an open mind and an open heart. If you can't figure out what your life's purpose is because it's too big, then start with something you're curious about.
When you explore your curiosity, you can use it as breadcrumb trails to find the path. And if you follow the path, the path will lead the way.

Yesika Salgado: Allowing Yourself to Be Seen and Finding Your Place in This World

Welcome to Inquire Within with me, IN-Q, a poetry podcast that brings you on a journey to the center of your soul through the lens of myself and some of the greatest poets and artists of our time.


In this episode, I’m joined by a dear friend of mine, Yesika Salgado. Together we chat about how poetry flows through us, finding our place in the world, and Yesika’s beautiful and unique outlook on both life and poetry.


Yesika is willing to be seen and willing to speak her truth to the world, and after listening to this conversation, I know you’ll be inspired to do the same.


But wait, who is Yesika? She is a Los Angeles-based Salvadoran poet who is a two-time National Poetry Slam finalist and the recipient of the 2020 International Latino Book Award in Poetry. She’s also the author of the best-sellers Corazón, Tesoro, and Hermosa, and is an internationally recognized body-positive activist, where she often refers to herself as the fat, fly poet. Her work has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, Teen Vogue, Univision, CNN, NPR, TEDx, and many digital platforms.

Solo: The Birds Aren't Singing to Win a Grammy

Welcome to the first solo episode of Inquire Within with me, IN-Q. My solo episodes are a place for me to share unspoken poems, my current inspirations, and life lessons I've learned. Be sure to stay tuned until the end, as I share a journal prompt with you to encourage you to inquire within.

In this episode, I share two poems, with one being a poem I've never shared before. My intention with both is to challenge you to consider who you are pretending to be. The birds aren't singing to win a grammy, they're just singing. So who would you be if you were being your most authentic self and not trying to be something other than you're not?

Atticus: Wearing Masks, Understanding Our Intentions, and Remaining Authentic

In this episode, I'm joined by the amazing poet, Atticus, who shares his very deep and interesting story as to how he became a poet, insights into his creative process, and the why behind his mask. Throughout our conversation together, Atticus continues to remind us of the importance of our “why”. He challenges us to re-asses our intentions behind what we are doing and ensure it aligns with what really matters. Towards to end of our conversation, he also shares one of the most moving stories I’ve heard.

Atticus is a Canadian poet, and author of Love Her Wild, The Dark Between Stars, and the Truth About Magic. He writes all of his poetry pseudonymously, and when appearing publicly, he always wears a mask to hide his true identity. He says he wears the mask as a symbol to “remind himself to always write what he feels instead of what he thinks he should feel.”

With every episode, I will be sharing a journaling question inspired by the conversation to encourage and inspire you to inquire within, so be sure to listen to the full episode to not miss out.

Before you dive into this episode, it would mean the world to me if you took two seconds to subscribe to the podcast. This will not only ensure you never miss an episode, but it truly does help the growth of the show. With each episode, it’s my goal to bring you my heart and soul and your support means more than you know.
