Probably Buddha.

5-What influenced me to submit to have my poetry performed by a professional actor?

I need the exposure if I’m going be an established poet. Also I do find something interesting about the idea of seeing a professional read my work and seeing that go out, seeing other people see that and maybe be affected, be moved perhaps.
