Fell Into Writing Poetry Accidentally

I fall into my days completely up or terribly down The ups are much more frequently But the downs are dangerous Deadly downs Writing has compelled me to throw down my truth Which I cannot do in words or if people are looking No one sees me on a poetry site Some hate me and I care not Poetry was something I never thought I would do I thought it was foo frew and stupid actually. Then I read Coleridge Although I did not understand his words I completely understood his feelings I did not come to poetry writing easily It was something to do at work one day When I was stuck there for seven hours with nothing to do because it was conferences And no parent wants to talk to a counselor on conference day I fell into it accidentally But it helps the ups and the downs And forces me to find good inside myself

It's a good thing you did start; we'd have missed a ton of great writes!

I have to tell you this was Allan answer to boredom and excess energy looking for her outlet.

I'm so glad you put your pen to paper you certainly have been prolific since you joined the site and it is so cathartic to write. I had no interest in poetry at school, wrote my first poem when my hubby was undergoing cancer surgery and now I love it:-) You made me smile about some hating you - I have my mockers and my blockers but rest assured I am here to stay:-) hugs Jan xx

I truthfully have been nothing but fully nurtured on Poetry Soup.
