Poetic Dan

From dark to light
my poetic life


This is what my writings are
A place where I showed my heart
Shared amongst poetic friends
Whatever comes up, it is penned


There's always streams of thoughts
Flowing from rivers, to oceans of love
Sometimes it can be extremely choppy
Other times flowing more peacefully
Inspiration comes from one and all
This is my part of healing our whole


As this person in my mirror I'm finally proud of, finding peace with all the paths I've took.
No longer hiding those nervous inner monologues
Freedom is when nothing is bottle up, prosperity comes when we except all of life
Somethings are here to learn and break through
Others things are here to help and support you


In my writings I've found
The strength in weakness
Forgiveness through pain
But most importantly


Gratitude for the who that I am!

Yours & mine

  • Comment from author about the poem: I've been told by a few close friends I should put this all in book format. For someone that never finished school, still uses the microphone to spell most words: it's something I've never felt I'd ever do! But it's been playing on my mind, so in this writing I'm thanking you all and maybe giving myself a push to become the change I wish to see.

      I've said it before and I'll sing it again
      My blister you are the most wonderful thing, your support is always appreciated!

      I'm now going to have to un-procrastinate myself, thank you again for your positive vibes over the years

    • Michael Edwards

      Go for it Dan - you've written some great work.

      • Poetic Dan

        Thank you my friend, I like the way you have said it as I'm struggling to not delete ones as I go back through!
        But much like the days, there are good ones and bad ones so I guess I'll keep them all

        None of us are perfect except you and me Dan. Because you are perfectly you and i am perfectly me. Perfect imperfection.

        There is a way of printing off all of your own poems on here but i cant find it on here at the moment. Its called 'publish an anthology of user name's poetry'.

        • Poetic Dan

          Perfectly imperfect and here to learn, thank you for reminding me of this site's features too.
          I'm honestly not sure where to start and it's really hard to stop writing more lol

          • dusk arising

            Dont stop writing Dan. There were times when being able to publish only one a day was a restriction for me but lately i have not been writing much at all, so now would be the time to publish my 'overspill' if you see what i mean.

          • Crystal Hope

            This was a great and well done poem.

            • Poetic Dan

              Thank you kindly
              Always appreciated
              Look forward to working my way up the friends list to read yours!

            • Goldfinch60

              You have moved your life onwards Dan into a great place, let others share your experiences.

              • Poetic Dan

                I find it overwhelming but something I want to do!
                I could never thank you and others enough for the encouragement on stepping out of my comfort zone!

              • Nafis Light

                This is the first poem which made me feel like 'printing it out'.

                It's like it appeals to everyone here and there's a sense of gratitude.

                Blessings, Love and you.
