Reading and writing poetry speaks to the soul,
Sometimes you have to fall before you reach your goal.
I would often question myself and ask who am I?
Why am I doing this? Is it worth a try?
I am the only young male in my immediate family,
It warms my heart to know how much poetry has empowered me.
From hot and sleepless nights to dreadful days,
I knew that my issues would not last always.
I would write whenever something jumped to my knowledge,
I never knew where I was going but I knew eventually I would find it.
Poetry illustrated methods on how to channel each feeling,
You have to love yourself because your life has a meaning.
I never understood how important poetry was,
Until I started doing it to see if it helps and it does.
I have a poem written to save lives but I can not do it alone,
I’m thankful for poetry because it has taught me how to stand on my own.
