hello everyone.i have written poetry for many years. i would like to set up a poetry blog to get people more in tune with their artistic side. people think that poetry is girly, but its not. people don't understand that poetry is a way of expressing ones feelings. i use poetry when I'm mad or depressed. see I'm bipolar type 2 and it involves suicidal thoughts. i have tried to many times but thought about what that would do to my family. so instead of committing suicide i wrote a poem about how i was feeling. and it took away some of the edge off my depression and anguish.
