Poetry saved me

Poetry saved me for many reasons

She even got me through the roughest seasons

She saved me from suicide

Even when I couldn't see past my foolish pride, that almost led to my demise

She met me with such a warm embrace, an embrace that truly changed my pace

An embrace that helped me grow into what I am

She embraced me and lead me to a new path

Which eventually led me to Virginia State University and led me to even learn new math. 

Poetry let me know she was my safe place

Even when I felt so low

She let me know, even from the concrete a flower could grow
