Release The Poet
Here I am, sitting on pens and needles
pain is my companion.
I wasn't born a renegade, or a knight
in shining armor but I was born a fighter.
All these years have passed behind me,
I am turning fourty two soon
as I keep walking forward
looking behind me.
My footprints are a reminder
how far I've gone and the farther
I plan to go.
My memories follow into
the shallow waters of my life.
I keep going forward watching the
sun rise and fall, while the moon
peeks for a better view.
Sometimes I dip into the deeper parts
of myself, I tug on the possibilities of
my creativity and I write what I see.
I feel like I am falling but in reality
I am sitting still.
Anxiety is a struggle but here I am free
as I release my stress through poetry.
