Why I Choose My Poetic Side?

I came to the realization

that poetry is not just an interest;

That poetry is not just a hobby

and not just something for people to see.

 

I want to and I know I could

use poetry as my voice,

A voice that does more than just an expression,

but also help others in ways of liberation.

 

So I am here

because it is of no use

if it is not shared;

If it is not read.

 

That's why I do my best

to make mine be blessed

and capable of helping

anyone who is willing to take a reading.

 

I choose Love and Laughter

because that seem to fit The Joker;

Other blessings might be in

but only on a whim.

 

----

With Blessings, Love and Laughter,

J44

      It basically means when people read, they feel better in a way (that's liberation).
      I'll never know what other blessings might be....maybe health, smiles, healing...but that depends on the poem itself.
      Sometimes the blessing is in the poem itself or the poem overall, instead of directly being stated as 'blessings'.

      Many years ago, I made a lot of Dark Poetry that's in the way of
      - each poem is connected to one another, like chapters to a story
      - but they're all dark as in sad and other negativities within
      - so whoever reads them, they won't feel better or they'll feel worst
      ----
      I don't wanna do such things anymore, because it affects the people who read those poems.
      It's like spreading negativity through creating and sharing dark poetry.
      I want to do the opposite of that.
      I got rid of those dark poems.

        Definitely No competition here
        Just expressing what we feel
        Art is freely showing the soul
        As you did in this wonderful flow

        Love and Laughter come first with me too - what better way could our lives here be spent than enjoying the feeling of love and smiling at all that we can.
        -- giving love's feeling to others is an admirable reason to write my friend.
