………….In some ways , I feel most alive when am writing.
Poetry helps me feel life.
I love to write.
To pour out my soul.
To let my sun shine out from me.
Giving this piece of myself to humanity, totally, truly.
I love poetry , it puts a smile in my writing.
For with poetry am fully charged .
I want to be nature. Normal is nature,poetry is nature, unblemished natural , even.
The very essence of my being define reality.
I am myself……..
