Interestingly enough, it’s been a long long time since I’ve seriously considered poetry again. Sure, there has been the occasional poem here and there, but I haven’t written seriously for about five years, and since high school before then.
But lately, I’ve felt like I should re-pursue something like this. Why? It’s interesting how creativity can get the blood flowing.
Never was great at tremendous vocabulary, and I had a thing for telling stories, or hiding messages in my poems. But it’s also interesting since usually I listen to music as background music, but when you actually listen to lyrics…. you just have to go “wow” with some musicians. I mean, its poetry set to music. And some of it is amazing at how they tell a story, but use tremendous word play that I would have never thought of using. It’s almost a total different level above my amateur writing.
In any case, it’s made me want to do two things. Increase that creative side of me, and perhaps pursue some song writing. Sounds dorky, and I don’t have the time for it, but it’s just another one of the many hobbies that I might jump at some day. Why not? Life is short. Play towards your romantic side. And who knows… this creativity might spark another further ideas in life goals.
