Hello everyone, I'm very new at this even though I'm a senior. I'm a french Acadian from New Brunswick Canada. I found my new love in poems. I've been told I have a gift in writing whether it's a speech, poem, letters to politicians. I've always wanted to take a bigger bite off this poetic menu. I'm very timid about joining but really want to learn and do better. I have a lot of anger residing in me and not enough stamina to correct the wrong.
By creating poems
expressing emotions
words together
releasing
encouraging
fighting
seeking
This is how I will continue to fight
in a loving manner
without a banner

Looking forward to this journey.

Hello and welcome to WF ;)
Thank you for sharing your lovely poem, you write about loss and grief so eloquently, and that is something we all can relate to... I started writing poetry at a very young age and doing so probably saved my life. I was unable to speak of my abuse, so I wrote it down, in poetry form, because my GrandMam read poetry to me... It took years before I found a safe place to share my poems, and I found that safe place here, at WF... I hope you continue to write and share your poetry and I hope you always find comfort writing.... HUGS* stay strong....

Hi,
Welcome to the forums. :)

It is good that you have found an outlet for your grief. I hope you continue using it as such and that in turn, it reaches others. You ended with, "together we can board the ship" that is a wise and very true statement. I look forward to reading more.

Thank you, my hopes are precisely that. I've only started to write poems and my husband is already saying: "Shut the poem off" instead of shut the phone off when going to bed. I hope to relieve many emotions in writing and hopefully I can create some funny ones as well.
