Watch the Poetry Reading: FORGIVENESS:
Get to know poet Sherille Williams:
1) What is the theme of your poem?
The name of my poem is called Forgiveness
2) How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?
I would like people to respond to this poem by understanding this feeling of forgiveness is not easy but simple.
I been writing poetry since I was 14. I use to play my Alicia keys music and incorporate that along with the pain I endured in my life.
4) Do you have a favorite poet?
My favorite poet is Emily Dickinson, not only for her work but how she lived her life. She secluded herald from others and I have a bad habit of doing that.
I never had my poem recited by someone else. I saw the website and just decided to give it a try. I’m not a winner of anything so when I actually won this opportunity I was really proud of myself. Along with the book I put this poem in, my first book THE MARKS ON MY SKIN.
6) Do you write other works? scripts? Short Stories? Etc..?
I have not wire turn short stories in a long time so no I have not, if the idea was presented to me then I would not mind using my creative mind to help out.
7) What is your passion in life?
My passion in life is helping others. If I cannot help you then I feel bad so writing poetry for allows me to use the stories of people I know and use my own experience to help others. Understanding someone else’s thoughts usually seem a one sided. So with creative writing it allows me to place in different perspectives but the raw truth.
