What Is Community Really?

“Community is like a rope with many strands, it’s about working and climbing together. That’s what teamwork is, it’s a community of people all working together, each playing their part. This is why you’ve been given family, friends, neighbors and even strangers. It’s like a piano, when all the keys are played in harmony, they produce a beautiful sound, but only when they work together can we hear the music.” – Bradford Lee Mace

One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since.

I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to.

My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people.

I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through.

And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”.

I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
