I chose these pictures to place on the map of my heart because each one represents something distinct in my personality- my creativity, my anger, what makes me feel hopeful what makes me feel afraid, what gives me strength, what makes me feel weak.
All of these places inspire me as a writer and as The Train Wreck Poet
I call myself The Train Wreck Poet because it best describes what I do- I put all of these words together and people- myself included can’t help but to look at the mess at the side of the tracks.
It’s funny, until I sat down and put this piece together I never really thought of the poetry part of my writing routine. It sort of worked it’s way into existence and now I do it.
I should probably take it more seriously but I don’t at the moment.
Now isn’t that something- I sat down and put some pictures together and learned something new about myself.
And I think I’ve found a new way to see the world and myself.
