Writing poetry has helped me with expressing encouraging words I am sometimes to shy to talk about. My faith is what keeps me inspired! Jesus, Who He is, what He did for us and how He fills me with peace and so much love, is how I manage my thinking, my actions and my will to succeed ( even when awful things happen to me, my family, friends and what I see happen to people I do not even know. ) My will to succeed, is to be a light, a positive outlet that I hope others see and want to know more about and how and why I feel this way.
FAITH comes from GOD. We (ALL) have it!
examples of Faith…. Medicine, Bridges, Cars, Doctors, airplanes, our ideas, and believing in others…. all of it is ……FAITH 🙂
This is what I believe and why I write poetry.
Is poetry really a thing of the past?
I believe that every person has their own way of expressing what they want others to know. Poetry is never a lost art form, if you believe it can send a message. I believe God is using me to send a message to people. He wants his children to know life can be rewarding and prosperous. If not in wealth, most definitely in love. I have always been a positive person. Sharing my thoughts through words is one way to let others know…. happiness comes from the little things. Having hope and believing in something is a very powerful thing. Poetry does not have to be complex or written with big words. My poetry is expressed with the love I carry inside me. It is through experiences, hope, love and excitement of who I have become and what I believe, through faith, that keeps me inspired. I can only say, if you want to write poetry, do not let anyone tell you it is never going to sell or no one will ever be interested. The people who know you, they are interested! They tell others and they tell the people they know. You are writing poetry because you love to. So, believe it! Poetry is NOT a lost art form…. it will always be with us. Like people…… poetry is like the saying…” Variety is the spice of life !
I plan on always being inspired by the people I meet, the experiences I go through and the faith I have in what we are here for. I pray, you too, stay inspired and believe in yourself!
My inspiration comes from all of you!
Every experience I have lived through, has led me to the person I am today. I found my inspiration with the strength of Jesus keeping me filled with His love. This wonderful gift was given to me when I asked for His help. Like all of you, life has its’ trials and sad times. It has honestly helped me, when I learned about Jesus. Indescribable, is the peace in my heart, no matter what happens in my life. Thank You, God.
Thank you, to all of my friends and family, for inspiring me with your love and your support!
I am a Canadian Author. I started writing poetry when I was 15. My Grade 10 english teacher was the one who inspired me to express my thoughts and feelings through poetry.
Experiences and people I have met through the years has inspired me to keep writing.
Jesus inspires me to use my gift to encourage and help others to keep hope and faith in their lives, even through troubling times.
My first book is, To Touch Your Heart, dedicated to my daughter Mary. The second book, Special Tribute to Mothers Everywhere is co-written with Gord Baird. My next book is My Heart is Yours, and is dedicated to my brother, Riccy.
The poems are written in a contemporary format and designed to touch your heart.
Here is an excerpt from, To Touch Your Heart – Poems of Inspiration
Mission Tree, wait for me
To say hello
to see you stand alone
so full and round
The drive toward your home
where you live
Inspires me to smile
before I even see you
my favorite tree
