Hey guys. How’s everyone today? Well, today’s post is about why I write. As most of you know, I write poems, among other things on my blog. I wrote about this on a blog; as a guest post, so I decided to share it here with you guys.
So, why do I write? What’s my reason for writing? My inspiration! My muse! Writing for me is almost like a form of therapy which helps me heal and let go of things. Basically, my life and my experiences are my inspiration for writing. I write to free myself and let go off all the things I’ve held back so I can be at peace with myself. And expressing myself through my poems is what I do because it helps me vent in a different and artistic way. My poet persona is mainly a girl; talking about love, sadness, despair, giving up, and then finding strength or happiness amidst all that pain. I write based on emotions and thoughts so people can feel those emotions. There was a time someone told me to kill myself and I was really affected by it; but then I decided to channel the pain through words; and after writing 3 poems about it, I was able to get over the whole situation. It was at that moment I realised that writing poems wasn’t just a gift/talent; it was also my therapy. I’m able to put my emotions or feelings into a few words and get my message across to my readers.
Writing isn’t just something I do for fun; I write when I feel down, and the words come freely to me. It’s very easy for me to write; as I write my poems between 2-5 minutes. And with such a short amount of time, I’ve successfully poured my heart out into a piece of writing. Most of my poems are about love; but not the type of love where you find happiness or where it ends with happily ever after. As a writer, I’m meant to believe in what I do and my writings are based on the fact that I don’t really believe in love or see it in a high context like others see it. Most people might contradict me on that; but my poem explains it all. That’s all I can say for now about writing. For most of you who have read my poems, you understand. For the new followers, feel free to read my poems so you understand better.
