 Poetry is terribly personal,

Invites people to ‘look inside’,

This is how I perceive what surrounds me,

How I live, what I love, why I cried.


It’s risky, sometimes, to be open,

Court ridicule, pity or contempt.

But it comes, all the same, from within me,

Bursting out, whatever my intent.


And it hurts, now and then, in the making,

Then it grows and takes on its own form,

And I wonder just where did it come from,

Then I’m proud of this new thing, I’ve borne.
