Opinions

I don’t think my opinions matter any more,

If I agree with them they will adore me,

As soon as I step out of line it’s a problem,

I got all types of opinions and I know they are only mine,

I find unique people to befriend,

They have their own opinions and there definitely not mine,

Should I be afraid to have an opinion now,

Freedom of speech,

Right,

Freedom to have an opinion,

Wrong,

How can this be,

I can freely speak I just can’t say what I want,

And if I do I’m a horrible person,

The point is everyone has an opinion,

Everyone should be free to voice their opinion in a respectful non violent way,

I’m a young man but I don’t think I’ll live to see that day.

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.

  1. You may live to see the day when we can all have our own opinions, but it will take a change in the higher educational system in order to teach students to be more tolerant of opinions they do not agree with! Good Job!
