Why do I write poetry?

Poetry to me is self-expression, self-care, therapeutic and healing.
In March 2020, when the world closed down due to COVID-19, I started to write again and I wrote a lot. Everything I wrote, sounded like poetry.
By the month of May, I realized I had already written over 50 poems and I decided to self-publish it. This would become my debut collection of poems.
Poem: Stillness Page: 23
"Majestic passion,
major shift,
magical existence.
After years of searching for these in instant gratification,
and the exotic drugs of the world
when I learnt to stop searching outside and looked inside,
I find these
in the emerald stillness of my being."
Excerpt from my book: It's Past Midnight Somewhere
Then one day while getting ready to launch my book, I picked up a paintbrush and started watercolouring. I incorporated my poems with art, which was met with a lot of praise. I developed my Etsy shop during the holidays in 2020 and finally launched it on Jan. 1, 2021.
