Why I write: Poetry Created Me!


I started writing to express the hurt that was wrapped,

twisted, and concocted inside of me.

It seemed to be the only way that I could fully open up

and express where I actually wanted to be.

No one understood, no one listened.

So I just slipped into a world of my own

and my skin begin to thicken.

Though I hid away from society,

and everyone around me..

I collapsed yes,

but in love with the writing I proclaim as THE BEST!

I branched out as I got older

slowly emerging into pure confidence.

Using the power of my poetic writing

as my own self defense.

I write to not only perfect myself into what I want to be

but I write to be heard by attentive ears.

It begin with me creating poetry,

but poetry is what created ME.
