Although many would deny, our lives revolve around numbers. We are defined by the numbers given to us, therefore we either take pride in those numbers or absolutely hate ourselves because of them. Whether it be grades, weight, age, placement or even the amount that is in our bank accounts, we as human beings evolve around the numbers that tell us who we are and what we can be. No matter how hard we try to step away from the common conception that numbers don’t define us, we all end up in the same place. As human beings who stray away from being defined by numbers are simply what we desire least of; numbers. We are simply statistics and whether we like it or not, that’s what we will always be.
At a really young age, I discovered my love for poetry. I remember reading so many poetry books and being amazed at how brilliantly beautiful words could get. In my everyday life as a young kid, I aspired to be able to put together words to create beautiful poems about the world around me. I was really pulled in by the idea that when in a poem, tragedy could sound so beautiful and love could sound so painful.
The thing I love about poetry is that it gives me the ability to express my thoughts by using simple words that, when put together, create a story. Poetry is definitely an art which I hope to improve in. I hope that posting some of my poetry on here will aid in my improvement of this art.
I think it’s amazing how our minds are able to learn and absorb new concepts and ideas. It’s so interesting to see that my mind is able to wrap itself around new concepts and remember said concepts with ease. Now that I think about it, it makes me feel so brilliant that I am able to remember things from year ago without thinking twice. Memories, facts, and things that I have learned just seem to float around in my brain. I mean, how cool is it to think that we are able to expand our knowledge by simply reading a few books, or getting taught a few things? The mind really is an amazing thing.
How can I even begin to express the thoughts that cloud my leaping mind? I created this website in hopes that the constant back and forth that I go through in my mind will be able to be expressed through words typed out on my laptop.
I’m not very good at introductions, I guess it’s just who I am. Nonetheless, I really hope this is the beginning of a wonderful, wonderful thing.
