Yesterday I went to a Slam Poetry contest in Albuquerque where they named the first Slam Poet Laureate. The competition was amazing, and it really made me want to write again. Sure, I may not be the poet that any of them are, my writing may be nothing special, but it is something I do that is done for me, not for the approval of others. I write because it is another form of oxygen that helps to keep me alive. I'm sad that I haven't been writing more, but I think that today i will.
