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
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.
