I have learned to write when I'm hurt.
I have learned to write when I mourn.
I have learned to write creatively to express emotions.
All this writing is part of my devotion.
Devotion to become a poet.
Yes you know it; someone that can express any emotion through words.
Words untold, words unspoken.
But what inspired you my dear? They seem to ask
I tell them the world famous poet Maya Angelou.
Evoking such feelings and words unspoken makes my heart race.
I no longer feel broken.
Truth be told I feel bold.
Stepping out of the cage at 10 years old.
5th grade was my year,
The year poetry took over my life.
I tell you this story from a place in my heart,
Deep down from the bottom where it starts.
