Losing someone is hard,best to write it down. It helps me to express my feeling when I write. I feel I can get rid of my anxiety without hurting anyone. It's a great way to get yourself mentally right. It's a coping mechanism for me in a way,and I know a few people who swear by this method also.
Poem for my brother
If this was the day,I chose to go
Who would miss me,who would know Unanswered questions,and trauma I bet
Why did I choose,why did I go
Unanswered questions,we will never know
I wonder,surprise,ponder and cry
Why did he do it,I think as I cry
We spoke ,laughed and hugged the night before I can't understand it,that's why it's so sore
My turmoil is constant,my questions don't stop Not getting any answers,I feel my head will pop On Friday I thought our brotherhood was lost Less than two days later,my brother had passed.
ive always loved writing.ive written since I was a wee boy.my first poem I wrote at the tender age of nine.ive lost count now how many poems I actually have at home.will need to count them one day.
An eye full.
I think personally there's no better way to express your most personal and inner feelings than scribbling it down on paper.it definitely relieves stress for me from everyday life.
Going too far.
i wonder sometimes if I go too far with what I write,ive been told that my poetry can be looked on as a bit controversial,or very personal to me.im not sure,i let people who read it judge it for themselves.
My new book.
Who I write about.
