It comes in many different forms. It’s been around since the beginning of time, and it evolves with each new generation. It can be said as unequivocal fact that there’s no longer a right or wrong way to do it. The only thing that has never changed is that every poem ever written shows us the eyes of the poet Looking without… As love mirrors the heart, poetry mirrors personality. Many poets choose to write about things outside of themselves—nature, God, events. This mirrors their personal character and the way they look at the world Looking within… Other poets take the outside world into themselves and use the intimate emotions to reveal their own hearts Just looking… Then there are poets like me, who do a little of both…or a lot of neither. If you’re looking for flowery observations on nature, rhyming pieces with any type of standard or pattern, seemingly meaningless verses that you have to know the "code" to understand, you won’t find it here. The 36 poems you’re about to read are eclectic, to say the least. They’re a combination of honesty, raw emotion, vivid imagery, gritty reality, story metaphors, introspection, depression, and even "song-like" verses. My idea of great poetry is something that I can relate to, something that moves me, something that takes the human condition and makes it both frail and somehow beautiful in its starkness. It’s my hope that you feel these same things as you read my heart through various phases of my life.
