I am going to follow through. I have a new commitment to myself, that whenever I sign up to do something or say I will do something, I DO IT.
I feel super nervous, because lately poetry has become something I fear. I used to love it dearly, but after tanking open mic after open mic lately, my confidence has really taken a huge hit.
Part of me is doing this to prove that I have what it takes, the other part to conquer my fears and something else inside tells me that this is going to be huge for me in some way that is unknown to me at the moment, but will become apparent soon and very soon.

I am so glad you are doing this. I cannot even imagine being brave enough doing open mics. This should be a very different experience. I really look forward to reading your poems.
Aw thanks, Caitlin! They were horrific for me. The level of vulnerability I experienced was too much. Good luck to you and I will be checking your stuff out as well!
🙁 I only found a few of your poems on the page- though what was there was amazing! Thank you so much for sharing your work with us!
