What I am

As a writer, I fear that my audience may not relate to my work. I often doubt that my work can stand beside the least of famous writer. This most times is the cause of my writer’s block.
However,
as a poet, I fear no one
for poetry is not a chore to me…
It is a need,
poetry is me
I live to write-
I write my life.

When I write
I write to express
the desires in my heart,
the aches in my chest,
the words struggling
down my throat,
the tears burning
behind my eyes,
the sound
humming in my ears.

A poet is who I don’t
have to struggle to be
A poet is who I don’t
doubt to be.

My poems are me,
my poems are my stories
stories of my life….
