The Bleak Reality: Life Lessons in Quotes and Short Poems About Reality, Nature, Relationships, and Self by Lori Jenessa NelsonMaple Summers here. Budding musician and blogger, author, pole dancer with a busy mind, a foul mouth, and quick fingers. We dont do transphobia, homophobia, biphobia, slut-shaming or racism here, because thats just bullshit. Im a burlesquing, dancing, drumming, piano-playing, generally very creative person with a busy mind.
I began writing prose and poetry when I was 10 along with very active journaling, which got really filthy as I got older and became a sexual person. I participated in the Wordsmith writing competition when I was in middle school, and won a writing contest with one of my short stories when I hit high school, where I also played viola in the orchestra, danced and sang in the show choir (which is really funny because I cant sing worth a shit), and furthered my piano skills by taking private lessons of gospel and improvisation with this bomb ass black woman who I adored. I also still wear my Wordsmith shirt, even though I am now 27 and its been...14 years? I dont let go of ANYTHING.
In college, I realized that Id grown out of prose writing (aka, school sucked the fun out of it like it does for everything) and only wrote prose under great duress until I discovered the hybrid of prose poetry which unleashed a whole new range of creativity, and probably got me back into writing in actual sentences, which probably also got me into blogging.
Writing in both formal verse and freeform, I further explored the form of prose poetry that inspired my book, Dear Lover, which covers some of my personal anecdotes in letter formats in an effort to make my writing more relatable to persons of all ages (lol, like, 16+ because I rarely write anything thats truly child-friendly) and backgrounds.
Ive previously had my poem This is what we shouldve feared published by Belleville Park Pages, an international literature magazine, in the summer of 2014. That was really cool and I was extremely proud of that accomplishment.
Im currently working through my first novel...s, a couple poetry collections, and some music stuff, you can support me by buying copies of my poetry collections or short stories, sharing my blog posts and books, blowing up my YouTube channel, and leaving love notes in my inbox, in the comments, and on my social media to keep me motivated.
If I havent bored you to death yet, be sure to check out my other blogs for advice/info about travel, childcare, gardening, health, and some other stuff because my brain is a busy, suffocating place and I have nothing better to do than write a whole lot of blog posts.

You can keep up with my book and music projects by looking at my Works In Progress, which are all located on Kisses & Snails.
Did I say buy all of my books, watch my Youtube videos a million times, and share my shit?
"LIFE" a short poem
Poems about Life Struggles
A short poem may be a stylistic choice or it may be that you have said what you intended to say in a more concise way. Either way, they differ stylistically from a long poem in that there tends to be more care in word choice. Since there are fewer words people tend to spend more time on choosing a word that fits the subject to perfection. Because of this meticulous attitude, writing a short poem is often more tedious than writing a long poem. Someday you will cry for me Like I cried for you. Someday you'll miss me Like I missed you. This poem says it all.
As the Day Goes
Life is full of challenges. Economic difficulties, serious illnesses, family problems, and political unrest plague people on a daily basis. How a person faces each challenge that comes their way however, says much about their character, who they are on the inside. Some people draw strength and inspiration from the experiences of others. Many famous poets from both the past and present have helped and inspired people to face and overcome life's many challenges through the words of their poems. Such poems help people to see they are not alone in their struggles and that it is possible to overcome their problems. Tick tock
