About PoeticFr33dom

What’s up? Welcome! My name is Jordan. If you have found your way to this “about me” section on my patreon account, it may be because you enjoy my creative expressions. I want to keep this short and sweet and to the point. I have been feeling called to express myself through the art of poetry for a while. For the last eight years, however, I’ve dedicated myself to the craft of football. I was fortunate enough to make it to the NFL, though only for a brief period. In September of 2018, following my last preseason game, I was released. This forced transition left a void within me, and I found myself searching for what came next. A few months after being cut by the Kansas City Chiefs, I signed a contract to play for the Salt Lake City Stallions, under a new football league known as the “AAF.” Eight weeks into the season, the start-up league could no longer afford to pay the players or supporting staff members. During those eight weeks, I had often found myself questioning if football was still in my heart. The flame that once burned so intensely was beginning to extinguish. While in Cascade, Colorado, a small town hidden in the Rocky Mountains, I typed these words at a small public library. I was searching for what would come next. Though I have recently been given an opportunity to play once again, I have decided to leave football in the past. It will, however, always be a part of me.
I find myself in unknown territory, the illusion of what I thought I wanted has been shattered and has left me vulnerable. I seek to express myself through the art of poetry. Through the power of words, the power of one’s unique perspective and the lessons learned through the journey of life. Sometimes I find myself mindlessly scribbling words on paper. These words are symbols to me, symbols that have been written in blood, containing the very existence of who I am and my attempts to express what my soul looks like. I would create this partly to share myself and open myself up to the world. Secondly, I share to inspire others for I truly feel there is no limit to who we can become. I have chosen to become a full-time creator/writer, and I feel called to travel the world and write about all the things I see. Internally I am always conflicted about sharing my work for profit but to do the things my heart desires, I am boxed in so to speak. With that being said, I would like to thank those who are in support of my artistry. My heart bows in gratitude, and may your life be filled with many blessings. Welcome to PoeticFr33dom.

Community is where true strength lies. What is more beautiful than the the ability to connect with so many? sharing different perspectives with one another, listening and hearing the values of others, and then integrate what we have learned from this connected experience into our own individual lives. All the while building a strong community of openness and integrity. Patience though, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
