Biography

I would always find myself staring at a blank memo note delving deeper for words to echo the emotions and messages I want to convey. May it be prose or poetry, I could not explain the kind of love I have for writing and reading. It brings me to a whole new different world, somewhere free from scrutinizing eyes and dictating mouths. But at the same time, it motivates me to surpass my fears and inspire others. I am a restless but a quiet writer, always longing to learn further and more. But I do not consider myself a "real" good one. Still a work in progress. And so I am here. -The Optimistic Overthinker, and an INFJ

Samples

Uncertainty Questions were laid Often hanging Grasping tightly The strongest branch Of a dead tree. Rising above A surprise in The drowning of Not waiting for Answers to hope. -Marianne May ________________________ Scribbles (A Haiku) I write hastily Patterns and shapes of no worth A whim to reach you -Marianne May

Marianne I have only just read your profile with keen interest.

First of all if you have the craving to write -- just write. Let your voice be heard, irrespective of people's response to it.
Never let another person's judgement of your work affect you. Having said that WOL is a wonderful site with established poets who are both supportive and encouraging. So you're in good company.

You seem to have an inquiring, restless mind and that's a good thing. So bring it all out.

May I also humbly add that with every poem you need to have a "big idea' and then express them through engaging words.

C'mon let have the first one!

Just read you profile Marianne. My advice for someone starting out in poetry would be this.

Make every word mean something. There are lots of words that fill in gaps but don't actually say much themselves. Make every word count.

Graham
