A poet does not ignore her emotions.
She explores them.
A poet does not run from herself.
Nor does she gush.
Poetry is discovery with discipline.
Poetry is exposure within the hidden.
Poetry is the personal wrapped in the universal.
Poetry is turning a stirring into a story.
Poetry is not about sounding a barbaric yawp.
