Article: Fortune Cookies For Aspiring And Experienced Poets
Dear aspiring and experienced poet,
Life is poetry and poetry is life. None happens without the other. Sometimes life takes over and writing suffers. As a parent, you will not escape the thoughts of “my family comes first”. Yet, a writer knows well that without writing is to lose a part of themselves. As a mother, I am struggling to maintain the balance between writing and parenting. Penning a poem requires more energy than it was a year ago. Notwithstanding the challenge to balance both creative writing and motherhood, it is crucial that I keep writing poetry.
Poetry has given me an abundance of guilt-free pleasures.
