Poetry prompt

“How I started writing  poetry”

Words were my weapon of choice–

I got to choose how to use them.

I could make you smile or make you cry,

Make you love me, hate me, or question why?

Growing up introverted, words became my fearless,

Unapologetic alter-ego who dared to be tested.

The power and energy of words were my freedom,

my escapism, and the eloquent way I communicated–

Eventually a form of expression of my

hurt, pain, disappointment and joy.

The innermost feelings I harbored, met words and birthed poetry!
