Is Lauryn Hill a Poetic Genius?

01 Oct

By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.


The always soulful Lauryn Noel Hill is one of the most prolific artists of our time. Always an avid writer, her soul stirring songs has captured the hearts of millions worldwide. Hill has an amazing voice and the topics of her songs are the defining point of her work.


Oppression, love, passion, heartbreak, is just a few of the many emotions she touches on in her songs. She has won many awards and accolades, but these pale in comparison to how her words have changed millions of lives. Her true poetic soul invites us to feel where she is coming from and gives us advice on how to reach our divine goals.


Yes, Lauryn Hill is, in my opinion, a poetic genius. Her ability to touch millions, her passion for her work, and her continued effort to write a change in society will forever be remembered. Her poetic expressions are truly felt.

    Her poetic expressions are truly felt – yup I totally agree.
    She is a poetic genius and at times a little underappreciated. if you take time out and listen to her lyrics you can really be moved by some things.
    In years to come phrases like ‘one of the greatest artist of our time’ will be linked to her
