You Can Do This!

“I’m not as concerned with how you started, but that you started. Secondary mistakes, accidents, detours, and errors are inevitable in life, and they’re not always within your control. That’s okay! What matters more than anything else is that we learn from our experiences, to ensure that we come out of them a better person, that’s the choice that matters most. That’s the only control we have with absolute certainty.” – 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.
