What is Poetry? My Own Little Personal Essay

The closer I get to finishing my book, the more and more I think of publishing, and the more and more I think about the many times I told myself I would publish my poetry.  I have sang this tune to myself many times, and still I have not completed that task.

It is a task that I will need to complete, because part of my literary goal is to have a book of poetry that I created, autographed and sitting on my bookshelf.  As my poetry, dating back to circa 2006-2007, sits in a binder in a nightstand drawer, I decided this weekend that I need to start getting that put in a more permanent form.

Movie Theater Chain Checking Bags Nationwide After Shootings

I don’t blame them.  The amount of movie theater shootings that have happened, I wouldn’t be opposed to someone searching my bags or even my person to be honest.  I know I won’t be bringing any weapons in a movie theater, but the idea that someone can come into an establishment and just start shooting up the place has me shook.

I understand others may have other views, but I think some places are operating on a “better safe than sorry” approach.  Won’t be too long before a lot of others start implementing this policy in their establishments.

Playing with Fire – The Intro

 I never thought I would see the day when I lost everything.  I look back and wonder if it was all worth it. 

It’s a funny feeling when your wrongs catch up to you.  You finally see the error in your ways, and wonder to yourself “Why didn’t I just come clean in the first place?” I never knew that my life would come to this; sitting in my apartment, wondering how my life became such a big pile of crap.  I’ll admit I was wrong, and karma came right in and bit me in the ass.  If I could go back in time about three years ago, I would have never went out that night.  That night is what started all the problems I got into, and ultimately led me to losing the love of my life.  Basically, I should have just stayed my unhappy ass at home, I would have stayed faithful to my husband, and life would have been ten times better than this in the end.  I’d bet all my money on it. 

I have to admit that I was definitely the cause of my marriage ending the way it did.  I was betrayed and played, and it hurt like hell when all the pieces of the puzzle came together.  No matter how much wrong I was doing, I never thought it would have happened like that.  I lost the the love of my life, Trey.  He is now living the life I was living with him with another woman and I can’t do anything but blame myself for my my actions.  I will regret it for the rest of my life.  I can’t put full blame on him, because if it hadn’t been for my wild ass, our lives never would have come to what they did that night at my house.  I did not want to lose him, but once I realized what I had done, I knew there was no turning back.

What led to this travesty you ask?  My cheating ass, that’s what.  I played with fire and got burned.  Men are the main reason why I’m single now!  At this point, it’s just better that I leave them alone completely.  I felt like I could find the solutions to my marital problems was within the company of other men, and I learned the hard way that that was not the case.  I betrayed friendships, my first and only love, brought shame to myself and my family and for what?  A few minutes in bed with another man.  You would think after the tragic ending of one, I would have learned my lesson and calmed down, but unfortunately, I continued to test the waters until it all caught up with me and I lost everything.  Like I said, karma came back and got me, and no matter what I did in the past, I still ended up paying for my mistakes and wallowing in my guilt day in and day out.

So, sit back, relax and let me take you on a journey through the life of Chante Wright……
