"My Poetry Connection"

Poetry is my escape.

Kind of like my outlet from the world.

Sometimes when I can’t express the way I’m feeling.

 I connect with poetry, to release the issues that have been bothering me.

I grab a pen and my favorite notebook.

Turn on some good ole soul music.

Then I connect with my inner feelings.

While expressing them down on paper.

I let my deeper feelings release while allowing my emotions to flow.

For a girl like me, it’s hard to let my emotions show.

Sometimes people are mesmerized by the way I express how I feel.

So, I use poetry as my therapeutic outlet, to expose another side of me.

One that I keep deep within.

Poetry relates to me when I feel like I can’t relate to anyone else.

That’s how we connect, when I can’t speak, my poetry speaks through me.
