    When I’m among acquaintances, I like to be the one to make them laugh
    I mingle and merge like two oceans coming together
    till I convince myself im normal
    with females I put away my deep thoughts and dark nature
    as to not make them think im crazy
    but when im alone.....I write........
    I write for the lonely, I write for those who have no love
    I write for those who appreciate nature and the beauty God has given us
    I write for the ones who feel different from everyone else
    I write for the impaired so their imagination can take them places they’ll never see
    I write for those who hear a certain song, and get hit by memories
    I write for the angry, not liking how society is shaping
    I write for those who feel sad, when they see the children with babies in the making
    I write for those who regret things in the past, hate the present, but welcome the future
    I write for anyone who can’t stand this ****..like a cripple on a pile of manure
    I write for anyone who’s ever had what they thought was forever...and lost it
    I write for those without a voice but have much to say
    I write for the people who fear night but welcome every new day
    I write for parents that have to struggle alone
    I write for people coming from work to an empty home
    I write unfiltered truth....because im a poet
    and this is what we do

    the art of expression and being able to "express yourself freely"...a gift any poet is lucky to be blessed with...for we know no boundaries..
