Why I Write

Written expression is my own personal therapy. It keeps me sane and gives my thoughts clarity. My brain comes alive whenever I write poetry. Self-expression is my way to self-healing. My poetry at times can be so revealing, Letting the reader inside, no longer concealing. Inspirational verse allows me to witness My belief in God and Jesus Christ to confess. Open my heart, share His love like a caress. Humorous rhymes let my inner child breathe. Creating laughter is a magical gift, I believe. I am truly blessed with each smile I receive. Poetic forms with syllabic counts intrigue my brain. Sometimes finding just the right word can be a pain. By writing senryu, haiku, and tanka, my mind I train. Love poems are my favorite poetic genre to explore. Regardless of how many I’ve written, I write more. Happy love poems seem to make my heart soar. I also write sad and broken-hearted verse Where people are loving then leaving or worse. There are no happy endings, just the reverse. If you should ever encounter a poem of mine. Perhaps it does not have the perfect rhyme The rhythm could be off a beat you might find. But know this one thing for sure about my musing, I don’t believe you’ll find the words confusing. Many of my poems can even be quite amusing. I write poems for me, so I write just for joy! So when you read my poems, I hope you enjoy!
