Individual

How can you speak for me and tell others how I feel,

One person can’t speak for everyone,

I don’t even know you and you don’t know me,

You only assume we agree,

Hold on everyone,

Don’t jump conclusions,

Just because it appears we have things in common doesn’t mean we’re in collusion,

It’s really not as confusing as you make it seem,

You speak for you and I’ll speak for me.

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.

    Completely agree with you. Even I hate it when people assume we will agree on the same things and their theory is is that anybsensible person would agree with it And if I disagree I am stupid according to them😀

    I feel the same way… this is what irritates me about appropriated fiction. If someone is very, very sensitive and perceptive, say for example a male-identifying writer telling a victimized woman’s tale, it can sometimes work. But usually it’s just so far off the mark!!!

    My inturrptation of this hears the word ” generalization”. No one person can speak on behalf of any collection/group of individuals, though they’re all similar in some way.
