I write poems, I've also written a couple of songs,
I write mainly as a form of therapy, in order to understand myself, and hopefully life. Writing poems came to me late (but never too late!) I hardly read poems before (found them intimidating) but I'm slowly learning to love reading and writing poems. My first love is music but poetry is becoming a close second...
Note: I've put an exclamation point (!) in front of my personal favorites. You can start with those if you wish.. some of those titles are:
A Gentleman Poet
A Sudden Rain
Ode To The Worm
