Selena The Dreamer

I am Selena the dreamer,

It seems my life is a constant battle,

Everything is so confusing,

Should I care if they think I’m pretty,

How do I defend myself and not become the bully,

Is it really a mans world,

When I go into an interview do they just see a little girl,

So many questions in my head,

It is a brand new day and change is slowly creeping in,

The sins of the past are catching up with powerful people in the future women and men,

What about my future,

I’m not a Hollywood star,

I’m far from the lady in the magazine,

I don’t see anyone like me on TV,

I’m not rich,

I’m not famous,

Not skinny or tall,

What I am is,

Smart and compassionate,

Creative and responsible,

Optimistic I believe in the impossible,

I’m Selena the dreamer

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.
