Im just a wanna be poet
trying to get better
I know im not that good
but...
I seem to be drawn to poetry
Like lent to a dark sweater
I find myself in word spells
as if my brain has an unspoken story to tell
some people say I have talent
well, hell... I can't tell
I've been trying to write a poem worth reading for years
but all i can come up with... are lame poems about tears
maybe I have to go through the darkness to get to the light
but from where I stand in the dark
theres no sign of brigtness in sight
maybe yall,my peers can bring me insight

you got skills,
i can see it in your words.
don't listen to those haterz,
they flow in cow herds.
i started off like you,
talking 'bout break ups and tears.
but i kept on trying,
and i got better--so i'm now here.
i got over 700 poems,
but if i have no understanding they are of dust.
keep on scribin',
destee and the crew will help u,
that's enough.....................(i don't know what they talkin' 'bout u got some SERIOUS skills-just let a little more out-don't hide what u keep inside u feel me?)

Poems written through tears and personal feeling are the best kind because they come from within....that is always worth something.
Write on....

Gracious Queen I hope you do come back to destee...I see last time you were online here was 6 years ago on my birthday...I was probably probably taking a puff on that good 'ol stuff at the time...maybe sitting back sipping Coffee, Tea, or Wine...I just had to go back and read your previous posts.
Moved back to the Borough of my birth...Queens New York...Originally from SouthSide but now I live in Far Rockaway.
Clarity to pursue my mission in 2020
