UNDERSTANDING UNITES US @ataraxypoetry

You can find

needless pain

everywhere


Fear fuels

greed, hate and delusion

causing suffering


What we fear

is the unknown

the threatening beyond


The solution: remain open

to seeing and learning

new truths


Cure your ignorance to find balance;

release yourself from

your fear and isolation


Embrace differences

as they enrich and expand

our lives


Embrace unity

before the cycle of us versus them

continues again


We must join together

to subvert those

who refuse to listen

too caught up

in competition

as the world burns

from their pollution


Let's teach everyone

there's a better way:

there's cooperation

caring and

realizing a vision

of prosperity

and minimal suffering


Let's break the cycle of fear

building trust

with our hopes and faith


In this world

where

we all love

cry and die

please

have empathy and

realize that

despite our unique paths

and differences,

as human beings

we all want and need

similar things


Our similarities

should unite us more

than our differences

separate us


Accept both to become

one diverse group


We are the people

of planet Earth

Favourite song and why?

Cloudkicker - Let Yourself Be Huge

I love music so much that it’s impossible to choose only one favourite song, but certainly this piece is special. A few select words gently repeated to an otherwise instrumental post-rock experience always manages to make this song quite moving and comforting.

What does poetry mean to you?


Poetry is life put into eloquent words. Emotions, feelings, thoughts, experiences, memories, fantasies and more are all translated into art. Creating art allows for reflection, healing, and the sharing of something. Poetry is a beautiful form of self-expression. Like all art, poetry can deeply impact people.


What is your objective as a poet?


I write poetry because I am compelled; it’s an artistic and emotional outlet, done primarily for myself. Lately, I’ve found joy in sharing my passion with the world. I hope to release poetry books and become a known poet. I want to share beauty, and help people with my words.

If you could make a phone call to the teenage you, what message would you give?


Some things never change unless you make them change. Being passive and waiting is not enough. Enjoy the present as much as possible. Forgive yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Love yourself. 

What are you most proud of as a poet?


Seeing so many enjoy my poetry warms my heart. I am proud of being able to make a difference in the lives of others through my art. I love when my words help someone think or feel differently. I’m very honoured to be featured by The Organic Poet this month.

Who is your role model and why?


Top role model for me would have to be my Dad. He has always been there for me. He is a hard worker, generous and kind. He is a great problem solver and a very caring person. He is smart, fun and so much more. He is the kind of father I aspire to be one day.

If you could offer any advice to a poet just getting started, what would it be and why?


Write honestly, from the heart, and people will notice. Actively participate in a poetry community, to support others as well as learn from and be inspired by them. Continue doing this and trying to reach more audiences and you will eventually reach your goals. Be patient and consistent to succeed.
