Welcome

I have been writing poetry since I can remember. I use it to express myself, to be creative and bring attention to things that I find important. Not everything I write about is from my own personal experience, it might be other peoples experiences or just my imagination. I’ve shared my poetry on Facebook and Instagram and everyone has always suggested that I make a blog, so I’ve finally decided to stop being lazy! You may be wondering how I came up with the web name ‘Font Size 4’, it is a title of one of my poems and so here it is!

Let me build words that outperform words,
words that are felt instead of heard,
I wanna build words that you can touch.
Words like ‘love’ in abundance since we don’t seem to have much.
So when you don’t feel beautiful,
you can hold it in your arms until you do,
And if you’re scared, you can look fear in the face and say ‘screw you’.
I wanna tattoo words on my skin until they sink in,
so deep that no one else’s mess me up ’cause my blood is full of
literature and I keep swimming.
When I die, promise that my gravestone will be covered in poetry,
font size 4,
So you can fit plenty on and always a little more,
Let me build words that outperform words,
When said I don’t tend to believe them,
but put a poetic spin on it and you won’t catch me leaving.
I wanna swim in them.
They flow from me like there’s blood in my pen,
I am a part of them.
Let me write verses inside my eyelids so when I close my eyes I still see,
I still feel.
I wanna build words like they’re the only thing in this whole world that’s real,
in this messed up world, words help me heal.
I write them down and all the bullshit leaves me,
I hear them spoken and I swear, they set me free.

  4. I give credit where credit is due
    Juggling words like a baller
    Your a goal scorer
    It gets so deep and sweet
    I wanna hollah this poet deserves an honour
    Creative as you are
    Your lyrical gymnastics
    Balances on the Rhythm
    Bar to bar you spin thoughts
    Like a golfer well under par
    Niether hooker or hacker
    Its not absurd
    In other words
    You run the race
    While others chase
    Your odes are roads ahead
    A marathon runner
    With lyrical stamina
    Your script is ripped
    packed tight with lines
    Your thoughts are trained
    WOW!!
    Your a superstar
    I the spectator cheers you on
    Your poetry flows Like a pro
    Your a gold medalist
    You deserve an honour.

    By the Undefined Warrior…
