Why do I write poetry?
For some reason, I just felt like I should write about why I started writing poetry so heavy. I guess because my words paint a picture my mouth can’t seem to say. I’m a very shy guy with a lot to say but I never seem to blurt out what I want to say. I just hold it in hoping they get what I’m thinking. It’s a crazy way to live but that’s how I do or how I did. Now I seem to jot down everything I think and I get so eager to get on the mic and release everything I’m thinking or was thinking.
It’s like I release everything I wish I can say to the face or faces of the people that make me feel a certain way. It’s ultimately an escape method for my anger and random thoughts. If I know one thing and that is that it did help me finally have a voice because sometimes it feels like no matter how much I try to talk to someone it always feels like I’m talking to a brick wall. Even with me making a poem about everything sometimes I feel like even then I’m still talking to a wall.
I guess I continue because I like how I sound now. If they don’t get it now, eventually they’ll realize who the message is really for. Plus I really enjoy mixing my childhood dreams with my adulthood dreams. I use to write stories as a kid and still do, in hopes of creating a great novel when I grow up. Now I just want to be a great poet as well. So whenever I get a chance to create a story in the form of a poem, I take it every time and I love every moment of it. Now I just pray someone else will love my art as much as I do. That’s why I write poetry for my own personal needs and to touch others in the process.
