Poet Bio

I have a confession

This is not just an expression
but a declaration to make progression

As the definition of progression is a forward motion
I am definitely making a forward movement towards my destination

I am not in a competition
but on a mission to achieve my vision

This is a proclamation
that i will make it!
I am not perfection
I made mistakes therefore beared detention
missed opportunities because of procrastination
experienced oppositions
faced rejection
had stronghold addictions
suffered afflictions
but I will not wait for me to be a perfectionist in perfection
I will rise like a toddler learning to walk
Grow like a seed in dark
and blossom like a tree in the light

I am not where I want to be
neither am I where I use to be
I will gradually graduate which will lead to my graduation

Oppositions will put me on high positions
Rejection will lead me to the right direction
Tests will become my testimonies
Transgressions will be my transportation as they are my preparation
For this is my progression

Poet Bio

She believes that poetry is a word that is spoken by the hand. Writing, sometimes can be the only place that some people may fully expressive themselves. So if this be the area where some can fully express themselves, why not write?
