‘Irregular Student,’ another of Kween Yasmin’s impromptu spoken poetry, goes viral

Kween Yasmin, also known as Yasmin Marie Asistido, has once again captured the hearts and has tickled the funny bones of social media users with her latest spoken poetry piece, ‘Irregular Student.’ Known for her engaging content, the rising internet star has presented herself as a versatile and humorous creator.

Kween Yasmin initially gained prominence in 2018 with her rendition of the hit song ‘Hayaan Mo Sila’ by Ex Battalion. Since then, she has continued to captivate her audience with diverse content, including song covers, dance videos, and comical parodies of scenes from popular local movies. Her authenticity and talent have earned her the affectionate moniker “kween” from her adoring fans.

The latest addition to Kween Yasmin’s repertoire, ‘Irregular Student,’ is a spoken poetry piece that explores the challenges faced by those navigating the academic journey as irregular students. The witty and relatable verses touch upon the struggles of deciphering priorities and seeking guidance from teachers when faced with academic dilemmas.

The spoken poetry resonated with social media users who found humor and truth in Kween Yasmin’s words. The comment section was flooded with diverse reactions, highlighting the shared experiences of irregular students.

One user empathetically expressed, “Pero to be honest, may punto. Mahirap maging irregular student, iba iba classmates, hirap ng schedule. Pero we’re still fighting for our dreams! Makakagraduate din! PADAYON SA LAHAT NG IRREGULAR STUDENT [It’s tough being an irregular student, having different classmates, and dealing with a difficult schedule. But we’re still fighting for our dreams! We will graduate too! CONTINUE ALL IRREGULAR STUDENTS!] This sentiment reflects the camaraderie and determination of those who can relate to the challenges of an irregular academic journey.

Another user commented, “Ang galing ni Kween, nag-iimprove na sa rhyming! [“Kween is so good, she’s improving in rhyming!]” This highlights Kween Yasmin’s commendable progress in her rhyming skills, and the power of continuous improvement and dedication.

May sense naman yung sinabi ni Kween Yasmin dito, not bad for an impromptu [What Kween Yasmin said here makes sense, not bad for an impromptu.]” The user’s comment acknowledges the insightful and articulate remarks made by Kween Yasmin, praising her ability to articulate meaningful thoughts on the spot.

However, not all reactions were without a touch of humor. Another user humorously shared, “Irregular student din ako dati, pero si ako ganito ka-bangag [I used to be an irregular student too, but I wasn’t this clueless.]” This lighthearted response showcases the ability of Kween Yasmin’s content to bring laughter to a relatable topic.

Despite the overall positive reception, some questioned whether ‘Irregular Student’ could be classified as spoken poetry. A critical comment read, “Spoken poetry paba itong matatawag? Kung paano pinag huhusay ng iba ang sining na ganito, itong si kween parang binabalewala lang [Can this still be called spoken poetry? The way others refine this art, it seems like Kween is just disregarding it..]” This remark sparks a conversation about the evolving nature of spoken poetry and the subjective interpretation of artistic expression.

Kween Yasmin continues to make waves in social media entertainment, showcasing her ability to connect with audiences through humor and relatability. “Irregular Student” is a testament to her versatility as a content creator, sparking conversations and leaving an indelible mark on the digital landscape.
