I am....
I am a Poet.
I make art with my words.
I express myself in ways that are gruesome.
I am not ashamed of who I am or who I will be.
I use my imagination.
I look for inspiration.
I find it at once in nature and movies.
I find it in the world around me,
But what I find is not pretty.
So I use tenebrous words,
Just like a painter would use darker colors.
That way I get through life.
Although it's not easy.
I make the best out of everyday.
I went through the phase of "Roses are red".
I moved on from that,
Lost my innocence long time ago.
Now I see the world for what it really is.
Now I see the people for who they really are.
I write about the truth.
I don't sugercoat it to make it look swell.
I only play with words when I know it's ok.
