I have been away for a while. But I have been penning something interesting, rather I have been typing away on my phone notebook. A lot has happened this and last year. And I have put it in my own words. I have put down the emotions, the dreams and the reality that I have gone through. I have written on love, on hate, on understanding and so much more. I willed myself to a 30 poem challenge. Not written daily but I have to do it till 30. In these poems I have described a journey. And mostly, they show lessons learnt and how weak and strong the heart is. How twisted life is. I am giving you myself. As I have always done. The posts #APoemADay start soon after this post. I will post one per day as I take you on this journey. Go with me. What better inspiration for poetry has there ever been other than love. Welcome.
I am who I am because of what I say with the words that I have, the time I’ve got and the talent I possess. I will myself to do this daily because not everyone can do it. I am blessed to have this ability. I make the shallow look, and sound deep and the deep sound deeper yet with a simple meaning. I want every poem I ever write to be my epitaph. Sometimes I am in my element, sometimes I'm not. There are pieces I don’t believe I wrote because I am not that person anymore. But the truth is; this is a reflection of who I am, who I’ve been and who I will be. I started doing this at age 14 so I guess my works will best be described as “14 going on to immortality”.
