SOMETHING ABOUT ME, AND ALL OF YOU
I started writing in 1998, my first poem was called my fight.
I remember sitting on the floor, a drink, pain, and much sadness.
At the time I was fighting for custody of my children and at times hiding.
My poem was about my children, today it is in a frame on my desk.
I wrote my poetry on paper in those days, I didn’t own a computer.
I never let anyone read my writing, I didn’t want their opinions.
I finally gave myself a treat, I went and bought a computer.
I spent many months typing out my poems, a lot have pictures to them.
To this day I have thousands of poems, 23 binders and still writing.
I started letting people read them many years ago, I had the chance
to read them in front of an audience thanks to my son’s Kung- Fu Instructor.
I was scared but started doing it at every Demonstration and award ceremonies.
A guy that I was speaking with once suggested I start a blog, post my writing.
My sons’ girlfriend got me started, she set up WordPress and helped me out.
I have made some friends on here as well as so much support with my writing.
I have learned not to get angry, I opened myself up to opinions and criticism.
I just say thank you for reading and think about what has been said about a poem.
I have learned a lot from having a blog on WordPress, I appreciate all of you.
I can write better and have had many ideas thanks to your thoughts and comments.
Thank you for reading,
