I Am A Poet - Poem by Courtney Redmond

I am a poet
I write my tragedies, I write my sins
For this please excuse me, for what I have written to feel again
Cry it out they say
But how do you cry when pain runs deep.
Through scars not healed, by the warm breeze.
So let me write it down so that it can all go away.

I write my happiness, I write my joys
I feel it move me like a dancer to a beat
Feel the beat?
That’s my song there playing.
So as my inspiration is my beat
I will write the happiness it is to finally feel loved
Love is what I searched for in life
But I found it in my poetry.
So my happiness is my poetry

Crossing the lines of the picture gets the artist a great recommendation
If I cross my words will I get recognized by society?
If I take my time to write about the life of me and not about my tragedies and happiness
What would I be labeled as?
For my tragedies and happiness has made me be the young women of today
So to a final, I say let my life be known by the words I wrote.

    I understand the feeling, for me too...writing is a means to vent out what I feel and give me a sense of relief: -) (Report) Reply
