My Poetry

Poetry is my sanity,
my diary,
my life song.
It let's me tell my stories,
that could have been too long.

Poetry allows me to be free
of everything that has eaten me.
It lets me express my thoughts

Poetry is a way to praise,
to tell of hope 
in unknown ways.
It's a way to let the world know,
of how my life has changed.

Poetry are the tears I cried,
because of lies,
things I despised,
and thoughts that made me want to die.

Poetry is my voice,
when all I had was a whisper.
It makes the world I know,
something less bitter,
easier to embrace.

Poetry is my gift,
that God freely gives.
He knows that I am tired,
unable to express my thoughts
and this keeps me alive inside.
