How Poetry Saved Me

There were times that I just wanted to scream
Leave this world and into the next
But I fear the pain more than my life, so it seems
And so my mind's constantly vexed
It is then that it came to me that words do save
My thoughts don't need to be told in a normal way
Poetry soon became a close friend
One I could never deny
I finally had some peace of mind
My thought they would spill in a mumble of letters
And soon I had whole lines put together
My soul became just a little bit lighter
No longer chained by my tears
I flew and flew so much higher
And I am no longer leashed by my fears
I have to give my thanks to all poetry saints
It was them who introduced me to a new way to see
Through words I found a release
In my mind there is peace
Memories of dark past expressed
And I no longer have pent-up stress
Poetry has set me free
So that I can become who I want to be
