The anchor of the ship sinks into the dark sea where the sunlight can’t reach to make sure the ship floats and doesn’t get carried away by the life's waves. This is one soul designed to descend into darkness for thousands to survive.
This is the life of the poet who reaches out beyond what normal people can perceive, to the land of a thousand word. Indeed, this is what I try to portray in my poetry. I try to let my soul reflect the poet’s strife as he walks through life experiencing it, not like a regular person, but like a person who has set foot into the lives of everyone, thus, living their sorrow, being swayed by at and enduring their loss as well as savoring their happiness.
And so I let my pen freely write, not ever thinking of the words it jots down, for I believe my words are free to venture into worlds where no human foot could step, where no human façade could mask their true identity or meaning. And I write, without thinking of a theme or what the audience wants for this is the only freedom I can attain, while living in a world that constraints you by all the veneers and facades it creates.
I believe I remain true to myself by never brainstorming nor picking a theme for my poems. I just let my pen write whatever I am feeling at the moment. Indeed, perhaps my friend was right when he said that several of my poems lacked a central theme. Yet in my defense the central theme of my writing is the pain of the poet is granted to endure as a reflection of his society and its pains.
The mind can’t comprehend pain and analyze it or its variables, yet poetry offers you that luxury. And based on that, each poem is a reflection of the poet’s emotional state. Hence some poems to a group of readers might not make sense, yet to someone who has tasted or shared the poet’s pain it might sound like a past memory when both the writer and that reader can connect and communicate with each other.
This is who I am, and this is my vision throughout my life as a poet, so enjoy the ride, and blessed be the scribed verses of the poet and his comrades.
