I’ve been writing poetry since fifth grade but I have never felt comfortable posting or sharing. Mostly because in the last couple of years my poetry comes from a place of pain, grief, and self-hate. I used it as a form of therapy and to express all the things I could not find myself to say out loud or share with friends and family.
In August 2019 I met my soul sister and she encouraged me to go to a speak easy and to write more. I shared a few poems with her and she embraced me. Ever since then I have been writing more and now have the courage to put my poetry out there.
I hope you enjoy and maybe find solace in some of these words because they come from the heart. You are about to know a completely different side of me.
