This following definition is from the Poetry Foundation

The art of Spoken Word has its roots in oral traditions and performance. It can contain elements of rap, hip-hop, storytelling, theater, jazz, rock, blues, and folk music. It is characterized by rhyme, repetition, improvisation, and word play.

These poems frequently refer to issues of social justice, politics, race, and community. 

It is related to slam poetry, in that it may draw on music, sound, dance, or other kinds of performance to connect with you, the audience.

It has become more popular around the world to relay messages.
