Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.
As you all know, I absolutely love all things black and creative. Allow me to introduce you all to my friend Kamari. I can't say that I know much about him but I do know he's a very talented, aspiring writer. His work is so authentic and pure, I felt moved to write an entire blog post about his journey.
My name is Kane Kamari and I’m a writer/thinker from Charlotte, North Carolina.
I started writing about two years ago, and although I can’t remember the exact day, I definitely remember the circumstances. I was going through whatever trials and tribulations were bothering me at the time, and I remember feeling so lonely. I didn’t feel as if I had a proper outlet for what I was feeling and talking wasn’t really helping anymore. Due to the recommendation of a friend, I started writing my feelings down and eventually, those words started forming into poems. I started writing poetry very naturally, it wasn’t really a decision, but an evolution.
Love has always been something I’ve naturally been moved to write about, as it is something I’ve always worked hard to keep flowing through my spirit. I also like to write about various elements of life and tying them in with elements of nature. I have a strong belief that everything is connected, considering we all derive from the same source.
What makes you different from other writers?
I honestly had to think about this question. I tried to come up with some clever and witty answer but honestly, what makes me different from writers is a combination of two things. The way I perceive the world, and your perception of what it is that I perceive. Regardless of if I’m trying to or not, I am going to see the world different than the man who stands next to me, and you can see that through my writing. Due to the limits of human language, there is a finite number of things that can be said before everything just starts to be repeated so although I am the same as the next writer, I can only tell my story, just as they can only tell theirs. So, to answer the question, what makes me different from other writers is acknowledging our connectedness, while also exploiting and showcasing what makes us branch off from our tree of life.
