“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!
