In a time of so much fear and pain, I thought this poem might be suitable. I don't think we tell people enough that they're brave. That they're strong. That they're enough. We seem so set on tearing each other down. So. You. Are. Brave. You Are Brave Here, even amongst the stars that burn… Continue reading You Are Brave: A Poem
It has been quite awhile since I last posted a poem! So, it seems like a good time to introduce a new one titled In My Dreams. This specific poem is mostly about wistfulness. A wistfulness for memories I'll never get to enjoy, of a person I won't ever be, of a life I'd love… Continue reading In My Dreams: A Poem
I never know if I should be happy or saddened when someone says my poetry is relatable. It makes me glad that it resonates with them, but also sad that other people have gone through the same stuff. Feelings aside, I've noticed that poetry brings people together -- writing in general does, honestly. It's wonderful… Continue reading Fragmented
And so the last day of my poetry posting has arrived! My next posts will be about my story TWWRTW and how the journey of writing it is drawing to a close. But I still have one last poem to share. I originally had a lighter toned poem to share, but chose a different one… Continue reading Masked
Already onto the fourth day! Today I'm sharing a poem that I was inspired to write after listening to I'll Find You by Lecrae. It's such a powerful and emotional song that you should definitely listen to if you have the chance. The song is about never giving up, even when you feel like it. That… Continue reading Hold On
It's surprising how people can actually enjoy poetry that often doesn't have structure or a clear meaning. I've often wondered why that kind of writing sparks interest in others, and I think I finally understand. Our hidden thoughts, well, they're not structured and not often do they have clear meaning. Our thoughts aren't thought out,… Continue reading She Fights It
I've decided to post five of my most emotional poems, one each day. This is day two of me sharing my poems. I don't know if this can rightly be considered a poem. It has no rhythm and is just me pouring out words. Though perhaps that is what makes it poetry. I can still… Continue reading Perfect
A lot of my poetry is personal to me. It's like unlocking a window to your heart and letting the world peer in. It makes you vulnerable. I wrote this poem during a dark part of my life, so it's scary sharing some of these poems that have been my way of pouring out my… Continue reading Were You There?
I'll be honest here, I'm not the patient type. As a writer, that's not a good trait to have. It's the main reason I have yet to finish a full length novel actually. I've always gotten too impatient with how slow the story was going and I'd eventually discard it. Here's a quote I found… Continue reading Just Write!
My writing has been going excellent and couldn't be better. My poetry, on the other hand, has been rough. I haven't had any new inspiration lately and so my poetry has come to a halt. I'm hoping that by going through some of my old poems I'll be able to regain inspiration. The poem that… Continue reading Back to Poetry!
