The poem Water through is a fine example of how a poet or poetess is able to step away and view own actions and reflect. This is a poem about self criticism written by the English poetess Literary Bard.
About the poetess
A mother of three children, who resides in the English city Liverpool. This is the life of Katrina in a nutshell. She writes in her spare time.
”I find my poetry to be dark in nature.”
Her work is about searching for the edges. Pain, she found out, is more easily for her to write about. But, she doesn’t consider herself to be the dark person. She considers herself as a optimistic and positive person. This poetess has a very good reason to write:
”I write because I enjoy having an expressive outlet. I have written since I was a teenager and still have my poem books from back then.”
Katrina publishes her work on Instagram.
About the poem
Everyone has moments of doubt, of insecurity and it takes great courage and motivation to write a poem such as Katrina did. This is her poem, with self criticism.
It’s hard to disguise the disappointment lately,
It seeps through my cracks and pools around my feet,
Wading through the shame tires me,
The downward spiral of annoyance and disrespect,
Poisoned from the inside out,
A journey to the inevitable disgust and repugnance,
Drowning in self loathing.
