When inspiration strikes
when I start to write.
I feel the excitement ignite.
Never knowing what thoughts will come together.
Will the words seem too dark,
or will they be bright and clever?
Will I come across as too sad and depressed?
Or just a lady overwhelmed and stressed.
You never know what your mind can create.
It's amazing what was once supressed,that you now can communicate.
The winds of poetry carry you away with ease.
All it takes is honesty a little effort and soon you'll be floating in the breeze.
Open your soul, let your feelings rain.
As the words hit the paper like tiny drops of pain.
A feeling of release you've needed for a while.
Coming to terms with your past in your own unique style.
Walking away with a sense of pride.
knowing you faced your demons and,
You have nothing left to hide.
Sharing with others can be scary the first few times,
but it gets easier once you see that people can relate to your rhymes.
As we share our private reqrets and shame,
and we read what others wrote that are doing the same.
We realize we really are all in this together,
Sharing similar experiences, all just trying to make it through the bad weather.
I'm so blessed to have a place to post these pieces of my heart and soul.
Knowing people care enough to read, keeps me out of that dark hole.
Some say writing heals you from deep within.
It releases your demons, regrets, and sin.
I would have to smile fondly and agree,
as I begin to write more words that will set my soul free.
