Preface



I receive my inspiration from everywhere. My poetry is lyrical, and meant to be read out loud. I first became interested in writing poetry my junior year of high school, when I was introduced to the book Spoon River’s Anthology by E. Lee Master’s. I found it inspiring because it contains poems of people speaking from the dead about their lives, and despite other people’s assumptions, only they knew their own truth. It all fits together when you complete reading the book. Also, I look forward making CDs for others to listen to my poems in an auditory fashion.

“Alter Ego”

By Shelly Font

July 20th 2017



“Every artist needs an alter ego---

To go as far as we go---so how do we sharpen our souls as we grow

With the swirling world under-toe----



I feel like Lucifer sometimes---

Walking this world “to and fro” (that’s how it goes book of Job)

Lucifer, a flashing light from Heaven,

Stuck down for power lovin’



Jealous pride seeking God’s spot---

A love, a hatred

A cosmic knot.



So what am I and what am I not?



Evil gives the illusion of power

When all it is caught

Red hot and wroth.



I’ll walk the fence, seeking defense,

Or just a thicker lens

I wear that mask of power’s print



But remember we are heaven sent

No matter how hell bent we may seem---

Good Vs. Evil

And the scream.































“Abomination”

By Shelly Font

July 22nd



Hey,

I’m glad we are dead

It could have been them instead----

Murder screams large like

Crimes of windchimes---and I can feel the blow.

And I’ve killed, we’ve all killed

Me---

Did you know that anger is murder in the heart?



We are all killers---no one is innocent---

Lift up your eyes---

See the mind fields around you



Like “abomination”

I must be.

I bomb the nations.



Lift up your eyes to Heaven----

All this sin surrounds you.

Stay afloat lest it drown you.



Have faith in the king of kings---

And what he brings,

Walk.
