I’ve never been one to buy into that “New Year, New Me” mentality. However, it seems some felt that my poetry should not be posted on my favourite social media platform – Instagram. For whatever reason a few of those who follow me (let’s take a moment to dwell on the fact that my profile is private and I am connected with only those I know…) have taken it upon themselves to voice their dislike for either my writing style or content. To that I say – your ignorance is merely fuel to my creative fire and by moving my poetry to another platform I am not bowing down to your small-mindedness but merely opening myself to the wider world. I will never stop continuing to write and I will never stop wanting to share what I write.
