Hmm… Poetry?!

Hello hello again and welcome back!

A few days ago I came across a poem. It was a poem one of my followers had written and it was REALLY good! I was actually shocked. It was so beautiful. Me being me, of course, I got the idea in my head that I needed to take a shot at it too because, why not?!

I was sitting at the beach the other day staring into the water and started to really think about how the ocean makes me feel. I got in touch with my emotions and wrote every detail down, and what do ya know?! I ended up writing my first poem! I am pretty pleased with it. I've debated sharing it at all because there are always going to be negative comments and people trying to bring you down, but I am deciding now that I really don't care what anyone thinks. As Manny would say, "If you don't like it don't f*cking watch it!" Same applies here if you don't like it don't continue reading… There is no RIGHT way to write a poem.

Here's my first take on poetry…

Crashing waves: 

The ocean is deep

It sometimes makes me feel weak

When I stand with my feet in the sand

I could sink

Let it all flow away

In the ocean waves

That ease my pain and make me crave

What I can not see

But I know that I need to stand and be brave

For there are so many waves left to take

I breathe in the ocean

And feel whole again

With the sun in my face

Ready to conquer what comes next

In this crazy game,

we call life

Don't be afraid to try new things and put your creative self out into the world! You never know who you could inspire…
