“So now I’ve written it all down. Why? To try and make sense of it? It may come out sounding like a couple of nails in a rusty tin pot… But I want to tell everyone about my own people, how I love them…The sun is shining on another day, and hope is whispering in my ear.With love and good wishes to all…” – My Brilliant Career (the film)
I’ve written 164 poems so far and I know from experience I will not write a brilliant poem every day, sometimes I won’t even write a decent one! However now that I have written 164 poems if I decide to be a scaredy cat and don’t want to share the poem I have written one day, I can share one I’ve already written.
I’m looking forward to sharing my poems. I know not many people have the time to read one poem every day, and that’s ok. I’ve been writing these poems for myself for a while and it’s done me good. So if just one of these poems reaches just one person who can relate, then I’m happy.
I think poetry is just our human feelings dripped onto paper. People have written poems for centuries and will for aeons to come. And why does anyone write a poem? To make sense of our feelings and thoughts. And when we read poems, don’t we look for parts of ourselves in the poems? To know that we are not alone.
So I hope that in the days to come you can find a poem or two with a bit of yourself in them.
The first poem will be posted tomorrow!
