There is something about poetry that helps release the emotions in my mind. I am, by nature, a quiet person, and poetry, in many ways, helps me to talk to the world. It is like an extension of my mind, my temperament. It helps me in so many ways. Whenever I write a poem, I feel the happiness of having given birth to something beautiful. It’s a blessing to be able to see the world in a deeper light, and express what you see as beautifully and truthfully as you can. I really look forward to the poetry marathon, and hope to see the world in many, many different lights! Good luck to everyone! Thank you for giving me a chance to be a part of this interesting event!
