Scatterbrained & All

I want to thank everyone for their comments on the recent poetry I have posted. Your support means so much to me.

All these poems come from so many different aspects of me. Each verse I write has some meaning. I also have a need to see if anyone has felt the way I have at some point – past, present and future.

It’s a tool I use to release pieces of myself and cause conversation. Being bipolar is a lonely feeling because you’re all over the place. Yet when others find some similarity or identification in what I say makes me feel less isolated. It’s an up hill battle that I happily share with everyone.

Funny thing is, I tend to get scared of showing my work. It’s terrifying to know that other people will realize how honestly scatterbrained I am. Even with this post I feel anxious and apprehensive.

 I try not to let those feelings get to me. The peace and freedom it brings trumps those negative emotions though. A little at a time.

Truthfully, the more of me I show, the more confident I become. Which of course makes me super happy. I owe myself and all of you the experiences that have brought me to this stage.

Let’s face it, I’m all over the place but my work is the same way. My poetry is the beginning but there are so many more styles and genres that I explore. With each of my personalities I have different likes that branch all subject matter.

My fears are letting go and I’m pushing parts of me to the surface. In a way it’s like I’m cleaning out a big closest filled to the ceiling. Most of the stuff I’m throwing out and replacing it with a more organized situation.

So I appreciate all the kind words. It helps with the progression.

More writings to come. 😉
