I have been writing for awhile and decided to write a memoir, except I can’t seem to write anything but poetry. However, I don’t know for sure if poetry is the proper term. My work uses cuss words, & sometimes slang, similar to some spoken word or slam. I haven’t been working on the memoir at all but I think it’s because I’m not sure what to do with all the “poems” I’ve written & still write. It seems to happen everyday where I’m in a certain mood & end up writing something beautiful about my life and love, or terrible about drug addiction & mental illness. I think I’m pretty good & the few who have heard or read agree. I have a tumblr & online portfolio if you guys are interested in seeing what I’m talking about just let me know .
I guess my questions are what to do with these words I call poems, & are there any sites that accept rhyme poetry on personal experiences, mental illness etc.
