Is it wrong for me to be in awe of my own poems? I’m not tooting my own horn or anything, I’m just admiring what I believe is my ability to capture the way I feel in a particular moment. Discovery is about just that, seeing who it is that I am, the mistakes that I’ve made, the paths that I’ve chosen. Too often I would view myself through the eyes of others. I defined myself by that perception. In looking back over my poems, being in a new space, I can now see that. The poem can be viewed in a way that I’m describing life and not a specific person. And that is how I see it, its dual representation.
