Never think you know all the facets of what it is to be me. I'll only reveal another and blow your mind.

....you can't burn fire! I'll always blaze!

 

I do not write my biographies in third person because I want you to feel as if I am speaking to you personally; because if you are reading this I am.

I have recently completed my first solo poetry book and have had several poems published individually and in multiples in/on various publications, websites, and books. What does this mean? It means that I sent the right piece in at the right time for the right person to like it ...basically, I was lucky!

Being published is a great accomplishment for many but in no way makes them any more talented than poets on the various sites I have visited. I say this because I have read countless published works that had no more depth than a doorstop! Never think that because someone has published poetry or books that their work is better than yours!

If the only thing that can be said about a piece is that it is "perfectly formatted" then it is not poetry!

Be your own individual! If you can see where you can learn from a person then take advantage of the opportunity. If you feel you have nothing left to learn yourself then continue sitting in the alternate universe in which you currently reside.

Poetry will always be a matter of perception, perspective, and personal taste. No amount of education or fame can ever change that.
