Poet Introduction Hello. Poetry is one of the ways Iím best at communicating. All the poems I write are from personal experiences and battles Iíve gone through. I hope to relate to and or inspire readers.
Itís almost Halloween again and the world is so backwards. Wearing masks used to be a fun way to be anything we wanted to be as a child or an adult, but now itís our way of life. An everyday struggle to catch our breath. A way to attempt to prevent the spread of this disease. What if there is a cure? What if the people with power over us keep us in these mask to control us like prisoners in a cell?
I had to leave in more ways than one. I had to leave my mind set. I had to leave the house. I had to go to the hospital.
The reason was scary. The bed sat in the middle of the room. The clock on the wall bursted the silience with each tik. The walls were empty not a picture in sight. Yet, the sun was shining through the blinds.
One day. The fear hit me. Two days. The meds affected me. Three days. Self reliance became apparent. Four days. I started reaching out to others. Fifth...
We know how we should be treated. Yet for some reason when our loved ones start to hurt us and bring painful stress to our lives we cut them slack and try to mend the things they're breaking. We cut them slack because we love them, but unfortunatley sometimes they don't change and only take advantage of our kindness. It's hard but sometimes we have to love somone from a distance in order to ease the pain.
Now I ask my self, how is it possible to spread positivity, if I'm soaking in negativity? So I changed my state of mind and opened up my eyes for the first time I saw a light. Iím bettering myself not for anyone else but me, i decided to set myself free. I cant rely on everyone else, because it is up to me to save myself.
Suddenly out of no where I felt a mental crash. It was the sound of my happiness turning to ash. My mind was consumed by fire as my thoughts burst into flames. Sick and tired of the devil sending demons to play tricks and games.
