It’s been a white since I’ve blogged here. Life has gotten in the way of my photography recently.
Due to a back and neck injury I am struggling to get out as much as I used to. Over the last few years my ability to go out for walks has slowly diminished.
However, instead of getting down about my health, although don’t get me wrong, my injuries have caused me to go down some dark roads. I have decided to be brave and start sharing some of my poetry.
I’ve been writing for years but it’s only been over the past couple of years that I’ve started sharing it with people and now I’m lucky enough to write for a living.
Poetry is different though. It’s personal, far more so than any opinion piece I’ve written. Poetry is bearing your soul and as usual the fraud police are at the back of my mind screaming ‘for the love of god don’t show anyone that rubbish!’.
To the fraud police I say…come and get me! So what if no one likes it? So what if no one reads it? My poetry is what is it and I’d rather write it down and share it with the world than hide it away and deny it breath.
So, share your art! Bring it into the world bloody and screaming. Let it breath and see what happens. Maybe nothing will come of it but remember, you are an artist, a creator. It’s your job to be true to the art in your heart and your head.
Dare to share!
