“My Mother wrote this piece in 1983. Here we are in 2020, dealing with the same issues. THERE MUST BE CHANGE! It’s not enough to march & protest. AS HUMAN BEINGS, we ALL must ban together & change the laws & policies in place. THIS MUST BE A SYSTEMATIC CHANGE, that’s then perpetuated globally.”~Maxwanette A Poetess

🌹✍🏾”I Miss You”, by Maxwanette A Poetess✍🏾🌹
Sometimes in life we’re fearful of letting people get close. Usually this is tied to bad experiences that has us traumatized.
People can come to the table, really feeling one another, but then as soon as those fears & emotions are triggered? Things change & often it’s not for the good.
We use our pain to push people away, yet we still want to be loved & hugged. Then due to feelings, ego & pride, fences go unmended & what’s left, is what’s missing…

Words of the Author:
Life can throw us some crazy curveballs or even take us down a path that we weren’t ready for. It’s wise to take a moment, before getting overwhelmed, to breathe & simply regroup. It helps, restrengthens & allows one to refocus & even come up with better ideas to continue.
This piece reflects that.
So, have you ever heard of Narrative Poetry? It’s basically a poem that tells a story. But there’s a little more to it than that…
Narrative poetry is a form of poetry that tells a story, often making the voices of a narrator and characters as well; the entire story is usually written in metered verse. Narrative poems do not need rhyme. The poems that make up this genre may be short or long, and the story it relates to may be complex. It is normally dramatic, with objectives, diverse and meter. Narrative poems include epics, ballads, idylls, and lays.
Some narrative poetry takes the form of a novel in verse. An example of this is The Ring and the Book by Robert Browning. In the terms of narrative poetry, a romance is a narrative poem that tells a story of chivalry. Examples include the Romance of the Rose or Tennyson’s Idylls of the King. Although those examples use medieval and Arthurian materials, romances may also tell stories from classical mythology.
Shorter narrative poems are often similar in style to the short story. Sometimes, these short narratives are collected into interrelated groups, as with Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales. So sagas include both incidental poetry and the biographies of poets. An example is “The Cremation of Sam McGee” by Robert Service.
