It is an opportunity to relax, dream and leave your thoughts and feelings on paper or in a file. I am a 2nd year student and I really like this kind of entertainment, which I cannot say about any writing assignments from college. By the way, I sometimes use the help of a writing service, for example, I recommend that you learn review on https://essayreviewexpert.com/review/gradesfixer/ about useful GradesFixer writing service, in the current review experts have collected all the most important information for a student about the service, functionality and strengths of service, which will definitely help you make a quick and confident choice service in order to save time and get high scores.

Gives you the opportunity to explore your own depth and deepness in your own words and thoughts from things that you have experience and felt in your life sometimes they become mere reflection of your life a story that has yet been told through your own words 🙏

I think that language is a form of technology,
and Poetry...  

Poetry is a form of spiritual technology.

And that which is spiritual is limitless.

Thinking back...

The Writing began with an intellectual awakening,
which occurred when I was taken out of the world of the prosaic.

What I call "the first poetic fruits" was...  

Love Poems.

I just started writing poetry
to the object of my desire.

The passion I felt was so compelling
that I couldn't not write these things.

I wasn't really considering her reaction,
or deliberately trying to seduce her,

but rather...  Just...  It was pouring out man.

I think maybe because I was so introverted
and contemplative by nature, it was like a star that enfolds to unfold.?.

But yes...  I wrote them a whole lot.
(I never wrote anyone else love poems, as I never felt so inclined and I could never bring myself to be disingenuous.)

Then I sort of cast my attention on other subject matter,
seeing my conception of the potential of poetry expand, exponentially.

I sort of favored what I called "psychological landscapes",
as this seemed like a technology of advancement.

To me, advancement is a very important element
of this...  Spiritual technology.

I always wanted to develop myself...  To elevate myself.

I looked around, and just...  Didn't want to be like "them".

I experienced depression and things of that nature.
(Which I have come to see as a perfectly reasonable reaction to the human condition.)

But I wanted to be...  More than human.

And Poetry was a mechanism of transformation, in this regard.

I remember, around that time...
They put me in this AP class, with all the "smart kids".

I was quiet AF...  And would just be dreaming,
either looking out the window or at my desk.

(I used to daydream quite a bit.)

But we had this poetry unit thing,
where everyone had to write a poem, and read the poem to the class.

(You could definitely tell every one was scared shitless to read.)

There were random numbers drawn;
mine ended up being the last number.

I wasn't really scared, honestly...  I felt no fear.

Which is strange.  You would think a quite MF would feel The Fear.

I just felt very present and aware...

Like hyper aware...  Of everything.  Which is why I can see it like a lucid dream.

But I just...  Started reading.

And I could feel my fucking soul.  And I knew that this was a product of all of my poetic activities and operations.

(Such as writing in this hard cover tome with a magical ally,
that we called the "cryptonomicon".)

But I read the thing.  It was pin drop silence and seriousness,
a singularity of attention, which it was not for anyone else.

This was a very expansive energetic construct to interact with,
as you are projecting and absorbing, simultaneously.

After I finished reading...  There was a brief silence.
People seemed stunned.  Then they started clapping,
and the clapping became a standing ovation.

That shit was crazy man.  Like a movie.

Like a fucking movie.

The Star Machine.  The Machine of the Afar.  The Poetry Machine.

The next day, people talked to me,
who never fucking talked to me.

And then I knew...  The Power of Poetry.

Like...

That shit just doesn't happen.

We're interacting with some powerful stuff here.

And as life continued forth,
there were a number of moments where this realization expanded in scope.

As ironic as it is, I don't think the meaning of poetry can ever be summed up into words. It's too raw, too powerful, as it comes from the deepest parts of us. A release, an escape from whatever reality we may face. A comfort and a curse, that you get lost in as the words fill your head, and are placed into a sequence of sentences that just make sense. How amazing is it that with poetry, we are able to turn pure emotion into something that, not just you, but everyone can understand. Poetry, will never have just one meaning as it varies for everyone, but it offers a deep sense of comfort in all those plagued with an unimaginable amount of emotions.

In my poems, my thoughts and feelings. So I try to understand myself and show myself to other people.

I have always written to express certain things or share certain things in ways that can only be done through the art of writing, be it poetry or otherwise. Just as there are certain things that can only be expressed through a visual artistic medium! Which I also dabble in from time to time. Such arts are powerful things indeed, and since the days of antiquity art and writing have been the most influential aspects of all civilization. Whether you look at the ruins of ancient Greece, or Egypt, or Mesopotamia, you will find equally ancient art and writings... and from them you can learn much of those cultures and how they viewed the universe around them. In a similar way, all that we create will survive and transcend the ages as well, becoming windows into today's civilization and how each of us saw the world around us. Such arts may not be something that you can become wealthy from, but they are beautiful expressions of culture and individuality, and deep insights into what makes us who we are as people. So yeah, I am always mindful of the history inherent to such things also, and it is a humbling thought given the scope of time and how much can change in several thousands of years or so. The beauty of all art is its' power to transcend the ages and become eternal! With each poet and artist creating their own immortality of sorts through the creation of their works.

Thank you! I always try when I write, and when I speak too, to paint as vivid a picture as possible with my words, so as to bring those who read or listen into whatever it is that I am attempting to convey. When used creatively, words can be a gift, just as when used carelessly they can be the opposite! So: for me, I try to have all of my words mean something... except for when I am being silly, and even then, there is a certain method to the madness at work. Lol.
