The Next Chapter

As I close out this chapter in my life I can’t say I’m not going to miss it,

There were some good times and bad,

I tried to enjoy the journey with what I had,

Before I go, just know I’ll miss all of the memories,

Younger and more free in the mind,

I could find a hint of sunshine in every cloudy day,

God watched over me in my foolish times,

I’ve made great decisions and very questionable ones also,

As I close this chapter all of those decisions carry over into the next,

Somethings only God can fix,

So I’m starting a new chapter in my life,

God be with my family and guide us,

That’s all I ask for,

Because in my heart that’s all I believe I need,

I pray for health, happiness and a strong Faith in God,

Let this next chapter be the best chapter of my life!!

About csincere

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.
