    I write because I am and will always be
    A Poet
    A connoisseur of Art that is word
    A mistress of the pen.
    I write not because I can
    But because I HAVE to
    A daily catharsis of my soul
    My life’s blood
    My ever-constant companion
    My sounding board
    God’s ear
    This is how my heart speaks to me
    This is how my soul survives.
    Flowing
    Vibing
    Meditating
    A constant reminder that I am alive
    That I love
    That I am
    Through the scribe
    I can simply………be
    Anything and everything
    That I wish, that I hope for.
    A chronicle of my life
    As it happens
    A story book
    Of love and heartbreak
    The ups and down
    The fine line between my sanity
    And my sensability
    What is Poetry to me?
    EVERYTHING
    It fills the void
    That no man, woman or child can
    It’s not something to explain or show
    But to write
    To experience
    To feel.
    I write for my soul therefore I live
