Life is too real to be believed, yet we must keep dreaming and try to live with a resonance of what we think while we touch various levels of reality—political, social, personal, or spiritual—and be ourselves.

Genuine poetry happens as an event to be truthful, clear, courageous, and honest to oneself; to be open about things one often tries to conceal. Poetry provides an opportunity for expressing ones intimate moments with the same passion as while talking about the interwoven outer realities.

My experience convinces me that we are not limited by what we are, but we are limited by what we are not. Poetry becomes a means to overcome this limitation, and thus, allows us not only to know ourselves but also to expand on what we are. This means we should remain open to healthy revisions that we can make to our way of thinking, and incorporate new perspectives into our outlook. In other words, we should not let our own rigidity destroy our potential, but rather we should evince a forward-looking, tolerant, and open mindset if we wish to create future.

I don’t know if my poetry fits in what I think at the moment but poetry does help us traverse the boundaries of hesitation to see the joy of fulfillment.

I couldn't agree with you more! I've been giving a lot of thought as to why I love writing poetry more than other modes and I believe it's the latitude it affords me. I always feel I'm being honest when I write poetry and find it an excellent method of allowing me to get completely creative too. Granted, many of my poems aren't about my daily life and, even more rarely, about my intimate moments but the poetry is truly me. Thanks for this because you prompted me to do more thinking about this subject.

It was in my early 20's when I realized that poetry had always been a part of my existence. Before that, it was that thing about myself that I could not describe or put into words.
I try to be honest when I write. I often worry that I'm pushing too much out into the open. What I mean is, being uneducated, for the most part, I worry that I don't know all the rules. But the emotion is real. So I gamble, as it were.

Pen's words resonate with me greatly. Your piece does likewise. I'm glad to be near those that share my passion. I've learned so much from the likes of Pen, Ken... I certainly enjoy, and look forward to your work when I visit the site.

Needless to say, I'm glad I found this piece. You've reenforced my resolve.
