Perhaps life has something to teach, perhaps it takes a life lived to hear the voice of poetry, perhaps I have changed, perhaps… perhaps… perhaps that is why I have come to appreciate poetry.
Yet for many years, I’m the ‘poetry is not for me’ type of person. In my mind writing poetry is all gift and it should come naturally otherwise I can’t do it. But lately I am at a place of ‘que sera, sera’… so I will write poetry fearlessly (somewhat?!). The jury’s still out whether I am any good at it but hey, it is a form of expression and if I let it come, it is what it is, and whatever will be, will be.
And what brought about this stream of consciousness…? Well, Colleen’s (of Silver Threading) blogging event, Writer’s Quote Wednesday and combining my love for Sarah Kay’s spoken word poetry.

Now let me share a piece of spoken poetry titled ‘The Type’ by Sarah Kay. Enjoy.
