(INTRODUCTION) (Skip below to read a description of my mom to help understand
The next 6 poems I write are about my mom. My mom passed away when
5 years ago when I was 16 just 3 months after getting ran over by a car. I broke several
bones and was bedridden for a month before I was able to start walking again (thankful
that I am still able). This was a very hard year for me and impacted me tremendously
because my mom was my everything, my best friend, aand my #1 fan.
These are rough drafts for a poetry book that I am working on about family and loved
ones. All were written in 10 minutes or less so they are not the best and definitely need
some tweaking so any constructive criticism is welcome! I also have not started studying
punctuation and going off of my natural instincts on punctuation, indentation, etc. If you
have any tips on punctuation, indentation, or form: comment away! :) I want to share
my poetry becuase I feel it is a natural gift I have to express myself since the way I tend
to write things in text is somewhat mysterious making the reader have to think about
the text. Hence is why I dove into poetry because I've always wanted to be an author
I have just recently realized that my style of writing is atypical and works best in poetry.
Poems just flow to me, unlike writing paragraph after paragraph telling a story.
Plus, I prefer to be vague yet so descriptive at the same time.
Very sensitive yet such a caring individual. The nicest person I have ever met in my life.
Someone who let life defeat her by letting everyone else deciding who she was and allowing
her depression to take over. She never gave herself the chance to discover and cherish her
beautiful soul who deserved the world and turned to alcohol and later turned to pills.
Definitely more physical beauty when she was younger, but in my eyes even after letting
herself go, I saw her beauty. Deep blue eyes, shorts brunette hair (that she always hated),
small delicate lips, plump cheeks that lit up when she smiled, medium midsection, small
legs, and proportionate feet. 5'8" I am going to insert a picture of her with each poem.
Thank you for taking the time to read this if you did. I'm sorry for being so wordy, but
I just thought it was appropriate to start out with an introduction before jumping into the
poetry for a brief understanding. I could honestly go on and on, but this will do.
Thank you <3
