I write poetry
I write poetry.
I write poetry to release what is in my soul.
What I feel deep inside, The tears and pain, love and laughter,
The things that hurt me to my core.
What makes me smile, the panic deep inside.
How wonderful life can be .
The devastation of things and feelings lost.
What I feel, what makes me, me.
Things said by those who try to bring me down,
Judging all I do, trying to make me small.
Those who don't understand or know me.
Criticizing my very being .
All the things I've been through,
That make me who I am.
I have a tender heart, a compassion and empathy for all.
A loving caring soul no matter what I've seen.
I could be a different person, heartless cold or mean.
That is not who I am or who I want to be.
I write poetry to show my soul,
To all who may not know me for me.
