A need to get rid of the stress, the negative energy inside me.

I would say my outlook on life, as well as relationship with God, and appreciation that I have for creativity in words, are 3 things that inspire me to write.  I am moved when I hear inspiring lyrics in a song or see something that stimulates my perception.  Knowing, understanding, learning, growing, and maturing in faith, there is always something to fuel the fire of the mind.  I don't know, I just get excited, and before you know it, I'm halfway through a poem.  Inspiration and innovation are difficult to maintain, especially when you hold yourself to a high level or regard in your rudimentary discipline.  I tend to mix some of that into my work (obedience, discipline).  Anyway, other things inspire me as well.  Inspiration is just something that comes and goes at the right moment, at least for me.

I have long had the urge to create something worth reading, being both dyslexic and having ADHD this is something I struggle with.    I guess writing has always been a way of putting myself to the test as well as clear my head and put things to rest.
The next logical step, take the plunge and be brave enough to share.

Typically strong emotion whether pain or joy. Occasionally a unique phrase will prompt a whole poem.
