As for my life, my joys and sorrows, difficulties and hopes - my poetry remembers more than I do, and tells it more interestingly.
What sort of poet am I?
Poetry has been a good friend to me from childhood and though at first it was a shy and uncertain friendship over time we became close and I could tell my poetry anything I wanted to say in any way I wanted to say it, and it was always there ready to listen and sometimes (whether it was re-reading my own poems or reading those of others) to offer me some very good advice, or at least, I thought so. I've written most of the usual themes, teenage angst, poems about poetry, exploration poems, imagination poems, relationship poems, hardship poems, parental poems, poems for children, crisis poems, recovery poems, hopeful poems etc. My style has varied but is more often lyrical free style, natural voice and simple to understand. Sometimes contemplative, sometimes playful, sometimes optimistic, sometimes therapeutic.
What I Write What I write needn't be important to the whole world It's alright if it only matters much to me If it keeps me safe or happy for a moment If it offers me a method of relief. But it's nice if other people get to find it So I'll try to make it possible to find It might even reach someone who'd enjoy it It might help for a moment in their life. Because we humans aren't really that much different Though its true we may not be very much the same We're all in this world together, that's important We're all struggling with the rules of the same game. Though be careful those who look to me for answers Just beware I don't know if I'm right or wrong I'm just muddling through my own mess in my own life I'm just trying to figure it out as I go along.
