Tonight I'm going to an open mic. I don't think I've ever been to one before. I was told there will be music and poetry. Pretty cool! When asked if I was going to read a poem I said no, definitely not, but it reminded me of when I was younger and I wanted to be an author and write children's stories and poems. I actually won a young authors' award for a story I wrote in the second grade (don't get too excited, it wasn't that big of a deal; it just makes me feel more qualified if I say that). I haven't written much since gradeschool, except for a few special occasions plus some angsty poems from my high school years that I hopefully discarded. Hmm. Maybe I'll start again.
I was gonna share one of my poems from way back when in honor of open mic, but I realized they're in storage. Sorry about that, I know you're disappointed. Maybe another time.
Anyone else create their own poetry or music? Have you ever showcased them at an open mic? Or even been to an open mic?
