I am a middle age woman who has spent my whole life writing. I believe that the best poems write themselves. I usually write what’s on my mind. I try to be honest. I don’t believe (obviously) that poems have to rhyme. If you really don’t understand a poem- the author just wanted to you think it was “brilliant” because of the “college” words that were used
I think I am a fair writer. If I was really good; I’d be published. There is virtually no market for poetry unless you self publish~or~ you are Maya Angelo~ I’m not!! NOT EVEN CLOSE.
I write for me. If I like a poem- it goes up- what’s the worse case scenerio? No comments, No feedback? Some of my best work got no attention- but I like it!!!
I’m really not out to impress anyone. This is a hobby. It’s my life work; but I’m not getting paid- and if I don’t write another poem~ no-one is going to kill me.
Read~ and IF you like it, tell me. I like writing to people.
