Poet On Tha Mic! – Brief Personal History

119

This is a major goal for me, “Poet On Tha Mic.”

I became a poet, sort of matter-of-factly. Coming from a very abusive background and life, I had no voice or place to express my thoughts, ideas and feelings. I went through consistent traumas. Some were so devastating it made others cry, wince and cringe to hear it. So I kept my life, pain, joys and experiences to myself. As I grew, anger developed and I needed a place to put everything. So I did what I knew how and loved doing the most, partially what I was created to do and that was…”TO WRITE!”

I recited a piece, for a former acquaintance, a year ago. He said, “Max, you should record yourself reading your poems. Your voice & flow needs to be heard.” I tried it and was amazed at how I sounded. Was that me? The last time I recited a poem to an audience was when I was 12 years old at my mother’s poetry recital {at The New Muse in Brooklyn, NY. It no longer exists}. I had suffered from stage fright for as long as I could remember. Could I do this now? Here in 2017?…

I have decided to take another crack at it and practicing. 😉💕🎤

{Maxwanette A Poetess} I have been writing poetry since the age of 5. I enjoy poetic expression and feel that, "Everyone Is A Poet." We all speak and in our speech, we express a message, that is usually attached to an emotion and or feeling. To me, this is poetry in it's natural form.
