I am definitely a poet in my own right but I haven’t always believed this or felt this way. I would like to say that I just stumbled onto my floetic ability but that would not be the truth. I truly believe that I walked into something of Divine creation. I was stuck in yet another one of my ruff seasons . I was living in the results of a lot of decisions that I made. I was frustrated. I was angry and I was tired. I felt like I was just going through the motions; doing a bounce of nothing; wishing, hoping and praying that some how it would equal up to something. At that present time, I had developed a friendship with what I call, a mufti talented, uniquely gifted women. On a lot of days, in spite of our very present situations, we would sit on the couch and just have long heart to heart sessions. We talked about our past and how we wished we had did things differently . During these sessions, I discovered the true nature of my friends ability as she revealed the details of her life. I began to feel an even greater connection between us once I walked through her life ; through her words. My friend is a poet with an amazing ability to put a picture into words. That’s where it all started for me. She said that I had that same ability; that I was a poet too. She encouraged me to give it a try. At first, I played around with this poetry thing. Then one day, I got up and just felt the urge to write and that’s what I did. I starting painting pictures with words. It ways like magic. I started rhyming in my head, while I was walking and even while I was talking. I actually had full length life illustrations developing in my mind. I starting sleeping with a pen and paper on my night stand to caught the concepts that jumped into my head. I never really know exactly what I’m going to write about. It just pops up in my head and takes over and before you know it, I ‘m writing yet another one. That’s why I said, this is not an accident or a coincidence. It is truly GOD who gets this credit. I am not capable of this flow. This is truly the most fulfilling, refreshingly vibrant quest that I’ve ever encountered. Not only am I writing, I’m exploring and developing. I had to take a step back , rewind, open the door , and come front & center with my truth. “TO THY SELF BE TRUE”
