There’s something inside that just wants to get out. Words from my youth, words of the world that is now. They need to escape to show what it is inside that I think about.
When I get an idea for a poem and developed into something meaningful, the excitement I feel is unmeasurable. Having a good poem written is a day well spent.
Anything can inspire me, from landscapes to people to moments that just are simply thought about. I like landscapes to inspire me because it gives me a chance to walk in nature. Relating what nature is to me and feelings of love and thoughts of, help me to write the better poetry that I can.
A picture can tell a thousand words. The few words that I write about tries to capture everything that I feel and convey something that is meaningful as much as the views that are inspirational and in my eyes beautiful into words. Something when I get right is brilliant, but sometimes my words are lost.
I found poetry when I was 15. Wrote a lot, stopped, then found my train of thought again and then wrote even more. A lifetime of thoughts to write about and never knowing if I will capture everything that I want to, need to.
All I can do is keep writing, showing what I think in a way that not everyone will necessarily understand, read or believe. But here I am, over half my life with poetry close to my heart and I feel like I’m only just beginning.
