Why do you like to write poetry?
Jayden Jones: “I write poetry not just because I need to, but because I want to; I like to write poetry. Poetry, for me is similar to the sky in the way that it never feels the same way never twice; there’s always something different about each piece I write, and my perception of poetry is constantly changing. But, regardless of the temperamental nature of my poetry, there are a few things that I always enjoy when I’m writing. I like the fact that something simple, and different from people’s expectation of poetry can sound just as beautiful as something really elaborate and specific. I like spilling words on the page, and swimming in them. I like that in poetry, I can come to terms with the fact that sometimes I will reach a point of understanding or conclusion, but I can also accept that I’m not at a stage where I’m capable or willing to understand, and be okay with it. I like being honest.”
