Many people ask me as a poet why I write what I write and what do I write about. These are very common questions and I have had a lot of time to think about them. I write what I write in poetry to convey a point. I feel that publishing my work on a poetry site or just sharing with a friend has a huge impact on their lives. Now some people look at my work and go oh it's fine, it's just a poem, but some people have read my poetry and been pulled to tears, saying that it touches them deeply and they can connect with my work. I chose to write in poetry because people seem to like to read poetry more than just a long story. When I write poetry I try to take life experiences and put them into the forms of poetry with meaning and a lesson for my readers. I use words that catch the readers eye and make it so that I can connect with them, no matter their age, gender, nationality. So in short, I write to connect to people deeply using poetry and writing subjects like love, hate, friendships, and peace.
