The day has finally come that I have taken that huge leap, making one of my dreams come true. I have published my poems.
The roller coaster of emotions is the best way to describe what I have felt. From typing them up on the computer (I still hand write all of my poems first), to having others read them (keeping my eyes closed), to going outside my comfort zone and opening up this world I have lived in. Its so scary to open myself up this way.
I have always kept my poems private and only a few people have seen one or maybe two of these poems. Through encouragement of friends, family, and other authors, I decided to send them out to the world. Like sending out one of my kids. Whether 1 or 1,000 or million copies are sold, I can at least say “I DID IT!”. Now that the ride is going, I am already working on the next one to go on.
This is scary, exciting, thrilling, suspenseful, wild, but I will not change a thing.
