Do You

Trapped in my on mind with the world passing by,

I want to cry but there are too many things to cry about,

So I pray,

I smile,

I write,

I fight against this invisible enemy that’s trying to steal my joy,

You can only act coy for so long,

You know what’s going on,

Just like you know right from wrong,

Time won’t stop for you,

So do what ever it is you love to do,

Don’t let anyone determine your success,

Trust in God and do you

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.

    The more you speak, the more it lifts off your shoulders – I do the same, I feel the same … everyone is human… and I agree …

    Do what you love, be happy… writing also connects with others who experience same or similar in some way.

    Laughter … has always kept me strong – look for that

    And amazing people – you do come across them. I like to call them “earth angels” lol ❤️

    Stay strong and laugh always ✌️
