The Poetic Potential Blog

If I’ve learned anything, it is that poetry has so much potential – to heal, to empower, to incite widespread change and to power movements. It is a process of self-discovery and empowerment that can change lives, even if it’s just your own.

Here, I’m inviting you to take a deep dive into the world of poetry (and writing in general). We will explore poetry’s power, potential, and purpose, showing a world that doesn’t always believe in it that it has a well-deserved place in our past, present, and future.

But it is more than poetry.

It is showing the world that we all have voices that we should be using, for ourselves and for others. It is proving to ourselves that we have power inherent inside of us. It is rediscovering confidence, self-worth, and every little trait that we need to succeed.

And if I inspire at least one person to use that voice, that power — my work is worth it.
