But when I write, everything is alright.

There are no clouds, no rain, nothing.
Just pure thoughts.

Your poetry is what you make it.
The meaning behind poetry is up to your interpretation.
I write to please.

I write to inspire.
I write for ME.
I write to clearly express my thoughts in the form of metaphors, alliterations, and similies.

Life isn't easy...
So why make poetry?
I write for my mom
My deceased brother
And my father.
I write for my family.
Although they may not read my poetry,
I bless them in my writings.
I write for love.
And everything in this world that is REAL.
Regardless of the prompt, I write for me.
Because at the end, me and my poetry is all I have.
