Me

I could try to be someone else but that would be a waste of my time,

I am who I am,

I can be a better me,

Maturity and experiences shape and mold me,

Being myself makes me happy,

I don’t want to meet anyone like myself,

Uniqueness is beauty,

Not confidence I know my flaws and there are many,

I still would not want to be any other person then me,

I’ve disappointed myself thousands of times,

I’m so far from perfect….

Trying times,

Down right horrible times will come,

Still I pray there is no time that I won’t love myself,

I took time to get to know everything about me,

Weaknesses and fears,

Sitting alone shedding tears,

When I need motivation I motivate myself,

It took time and pain to get to this point,

Now when I look to blame someone for my mistakes the person I point at is the man in the mirror,

Then I say I love you anyway and I pray God keeps blessing me.

How long have you been writing poetry? -Over 20+years. How did you first discover poetry? - I discovered poetry by accident around 8 or 9 years old. I was taking a science test and there was a question about the moon. My answer was in kind of poetic form and the teacher thought it was great. My answer was " The moon is like a flashlight and the sun turns it on". After that I kept writing poetry and started to read a lot of books. I also listen to a bunch of music, all kinds of music. Mainly R&B music. I put song lyrics in the exact same category as poetry. When did you first get anything published? -I was 12, a family member was in a contest at work. She was 16 years old working at a clothing store in the mall. It was a tshirt contest. They had to write a slogan or a poem. I wrote it she won, I got nothing except a bigger interest in poetry. I still remember some of the poem " Thank you expiration, For all your dedication, Throughout the years, You have dried tears, You've always been there, To protect and care" . that's all I remember. Why do you write? - 1. It helps me with stress. 2. I like being heard. 3. I love poetry I see some of my poetry like abstract art. I know what I'm feeling when I write them but I want the meaning to be open to interpretation. Also poetry as art to me not competition, every poet that loves poetry is great. I just love to write poetry, everything I write isn't about me personally. I just try to think of how I would feel in different situations. So even though every poem isn't about me it's still my feelings.
