Since I cannot afford to financially support publishing my poetry, I have decided that it is time to share it via the internet. Much of what I have created was done so in the past, but it is peculiar how the future is sometimes predicted within my poetry from the past. In fact some of what I had been thinking and writing about in the past has come true! It astonishes me that I could be so accurate at predicting the full circle.
The type of poetry is mostly one-page and it can be very raw. That is why it is so moving…you see, I could not move forward without expression. These poems have remained hidden because I was growing much like a butterfly in a cocoon. It was not time for them to be revealed. But now I feel my wings are strong enough and that I can let go and just fly.
Many people do not understand poetry. They have preconceived feelings that poetry is all about love and romance, but it is actually an activity of processing primitive feelings that we are not supposed to let the world know about. I am not so afraid anymore.
Little by little, I will try to get these poems up from my jump drives before they deteriorate. Everything I do is done for a reason and I did not make my poems in vain. Love keeps on transforming within me and what I have written were done in my efforts to maintain a sense of purpose as well as to stay within reality. It is my madness and passion to write poetry and that is why I presently write it sparingly…to stay within the confines of everyday and push on with the struggle of living life day to day.
