yI’ve had this blog for about a year now. And I’ve barely used it.
Truth be told, I wish I wasn’t so neglectful. Or forgetful. Or even prone to procrastination.
I guess I was afraid of trying something different. I considered myself to be a reclusive poet. Every word, line, and metaphor remained in my notes. Only recently have I decided to shed light on the works shrouded in mystery.
Last year, I released my first poetry collection titled “The Imperfect Portrait,” which available on this blog and my website (brotherhumbled.com) for free. This was my first step in coming out as a poet. My first attempt at transparency through poetry. It’s about the pride and self-reliance that I (and everyone) struggle with and how it prevents us from experiencing freedom in one’s own self. If you haven’t already, I strongly encourage you to check it out.
After “The Imperfect Portrait,” I began working on another poetry collection. This one would focus more on variety, experimentation, and emotions. I also dug up some older poetry and paired it with my newer stuff. The result became “Way Word Soul Seeker.” Released in March of this year, I consider this collection to be a demonstration of my writing prowess. It’s also available on my website for purchase.
Aside from the self-promo, I wrote this post to as a form of self-encouragement. That maybe I’m doing something right, despite the lack of success. I want to start using my blog as a way of sharing more of my work. If you’re interested in this young man’s poetry, then please stick around and support whenever possible. I’ll definitely need it
