Our Lyrics for our Sanctuaries first-place poem, “Beyond These Grounds” by Jonah Denae
Jonah Denae, 17, is a female rap artist and poet, born and raised in Milwaukee. Grown in an environment where determination was a must to be developed, Denae is coming with a sound you don’t necessarily hear from the music scene in Milwaukee. But still, catering to the influence. With an endless discography of lyricism and a flow intertwined with versatility, Denae is bringing back the feel of femcee hip hop that gives you a look see of being rough around the edges and the realness of what can blossom within the cracks of the concrete. Poetry within her words. Rhythm within her lyrics.
