The poems, as with any creative endeavor, are starting to get a life of their own.
Originally, I figured this was just about getting the poems out in the world. What seems to be happening now, is that I am realizing this is about me practicing what I preach and being an example for those who have things in them that need to come out in the world.
I hope, in these, that you see your own challenge, your own potential for growth, and remove some of the doubt keeping you from moving forwad.
I also hope that you see the imperfections, and the improvements, that are happening as this moves forward.
May it remind you that you need not wait any longer. To believe you still have time is a lie.
I had a suggestion from a friend that it might be cool to read some of the poems I’ve written and talk a bit about what inspired them.
Given most of my poetry (that I’m calling “Gut Punch Poetry – Short Poems to Make You Leave the Job You Had Too Long”) is about improvement, motivation, and re-framing our situations in life, sharing what is behind the poems is as much a discussion about how to use these poems as it is about what they mean.
I hope you like these. And please share them and/or sign up for the youtube account.
