I started this poetry thing from the years of middle school. Didn’t even realize it was called “poetry”. I wanted to be a rapper but after hearing myself “rap” I knew this wasn’t for me. I had a lot of built emotions and I wanted to get it all off my chest. I felt as though I was being misunderstood and those status updates on MySpace was not really justifying how I really felt about my life. So, I wrote words on paper and created longer blogs with metaphors, painted mental images of my emotions and my end goal was to share the word. The word of my problems and how not only I was the only person who could feel this way. Then I started calling myself a “poet” and eventually I owned up to it.
