Freedom Ink

Poetry is an expression and release

An outlet to the overflowing plugs of life-

a place that listens when the world denies your existence.

I write to be heard.

To be understood and for my opinions to be considered

and not swept under societies blanket of what they believe to be

                               NORMAL

For I am an individual which I knew before

poetry became a “thing” for me

, but I never truly understood what individuality really meant.

At the age of nine, I saw the signs-

The Freedom ink created.

At the age of ten I began

To unlock the secrets of my soul,

into metaphors and hyperboles that expressed my life-

My passion, My sorrows, My story.

Me as an individual.

What made me different from everyone else-

My definition of a normal human in a sordid world.

I never wrote for anyone else’s enjoyment

or because someone had an opinion to express.

This is My ink, My freedom, and My story to tell

Mines and no one else.
