When no one noticed me - you did.
When no one saw -me you did.
When no one listened- you did.
When we are together it is my words that create your world.
Poetry has reached the depths of my soul because
The words that I use make statements
Those statements impact people
And that impact creates CHANGE
Some may think that writing with you is lame
But as the great Mandela said the greatest weapon you could ever have is your pen.
So, I will put my weapon -my pen- against the paper
And no one else -nothing else- could ever possibly do that for me.
When I write the words inundate me -they inundate my mind.
But, I love it.
I love poetry as the words that inundate me fall like a stone in the river
As they fall they create a ripple effect inside me - inside people.
So, when people ask what does poetry mean to me
It is the way I communicate with people -with myself
When I write there is nothing awkward - I am not awkward
When I write there is no judgement
When I write there is a passion that erupts inside me like a volcano
But, its not hot - its not boiling
Its warm it fills me with a warmth an admoration
That I have found in nothing else
In no one else.
