I have been writing since the age of twelve. That was many thousands of moons ago. I have always been in love with words. They have the power to build up or destroy. Words can adore or disgust. Even the way a single word is used can provide different meaning with different tone. Words are the most power weapon each of us has. We can use them for good or evil. You can make them your liberator or allow them to remain silent. I like to think of poetry like an ocean, sometimes it's clear and blue, beautiful and serene, or dark and violent. You just have to figure out which way you want to row your boat and let your pen flow.
Truth be told I haven't a clue about the specifics of poetry. I have never taken a poetry class. I do not have a writing degree. Nor do I claim to be anything more than a self-expressionist. This is something I started as a child for therapy. It was a way for me to talk about my feelings and let them out without truly having to talk about them. I could make a poem as cryptic as I wanted where only I knew what it meant. That was powerful for me, and liberating.
Some may call this poetry, or a fake attempt at what I may think is poetry. To me they are pieces of my heart & soul, experiences, and sometimes just a tangent thought inspired by a song, lyric, or a single word. Whatever you want to call my words, I hope you enjoy them. Thank you for stopping by.
