My Faith

Let me tell you something really deep,

Something close to my heart and soul,

I hold this closer to me than anything on this earth and beyond,

My faith,

I have faith because of all the examples and emotions that I have personally experienced in my lifetime,

I can’t and won’t force anyone to believe,

I’m not trying to be selfish right now but I’m just talking about me,

I have faith because of my grandmother and my mother,

Their faith was so strong,

So steadfast,

So real!

How could I not feel it,

I believe in my faith because of me,

You see I have always been searching,

Trying to obtain that strong faith I grew up seeing and still see,

Oh trust me it’s been a wild ride and I can’t hide my flaws and my mistakes,

I had some good and some bad breaks,

But deep in my heart I always believe I knew what was at stake,

I don’t take anyone’s word as complete truth,

I digest the knowledge and I search for proof,

I believe I have more than enough personal proof to believe that my faith is real,

Thank God

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.

    Beautiful poem, csincere. Thanks for visiting my blog. I love to write poetry, and got my start when I was young as well. It’s been an on and off again love, though. Now I do it to sharpen my thoughts and fit a pattern rather than to vent an emotion.
