the power of writing

poetry

hiding me within the lines -

between the stanzas,

changing me from shy and strange to smug and strong.

poetry

with words saying we love you

as the world is saying we don't.

poetry 

fighting to keep me alive,

to keep me true.

poetry

speaking for me -

speaking out in my voice.

poetry

losing my problems and

replacing them with power.

This poem is about: 
Me
