Most of my poems are inspired by experiences, dreams, and feelings. Things such as love, happiness, ideas, music, my opinions etc. I started writing in a diary at a young age to deal with issues that went on associated with the fact that I was in foster care. One day in my room, while listening to music I wondered if i could put my feelings that I put in my diary into poems like lyrics in a song instead. So I've been doing that ever since but just poetry without music.
