Some People I Know

Why is it always an argument with you,

If I disagree doesn’t make me wrong,

Because you feel strongly about something doesn’t make you right,

Your always trying to win this fight you created in your mind,

It’s like mental warfare with you all the time,

I’m positive you love to argue,

I’m sure one of your goals in life is to think your always right,

You can’t force me to agree,

I’m ok with you so why can’t you let me be me,

I don’t see what you get out of going around debating with everyone,

Your a know it all,

At least you think you are,

These all not positive words, but there real to me,

Aggressive, know it all, rude people,

Don’t appeal to 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.

  1. I like how you describe ‘mental warfare’. it is difficult at the moment but I do try to remind my loved ones and myself that it isn’t about right or wrong. Love isn’t’ broken. It is a chance to learn more about each other. It is hard but I believe we can do it if we are willing to practise through each experience.

    Exactly! Just because you think you’re right doesn’t make anyone less wrong. It’s your opinion and you can present it in front of others, for them to contemplate it. You can’t force your ideas and views onto others.
