Why I write POETRY?

We all have our struggles, some dark, some hidden but each more tumultuous than other. It is not easy coping with such challenges. Poetry for me is a channel to release those complicated emotions. Words I could never verbalize have always come to my rescue in the form of poetry. Whether be loss of a parent, anxiety that I will have to lose another, unforseen health situations, malicious harm of my reputation, suffering of my dear ones, anxiety at work, fear of separation from the love of my life, I turn it into something tangible so I can identify the source of my sorrow. Also, makes me feel less alone. 
Not many are blessed to do this kind of analysis and come out unscathed. Some unfortunate ones succumb and sacrifice their lives when it could be put to a higher purpose. 
I write because I am stubborn to conquer the demons within me. I write because I want to lead by example no matter how tough it is. I write to assure the people who’ve invested their hopes in me that I won’t give up. I write because I am capable of knowing the difference between a dream and dream within a dream. I write because I want to live for love. I write because I am a fighter not just a survivor.
