How I Journeyed in Poetry

Words did flow like any simple person I had no experience to write on Then real life happened, and a storm appeared Just like that, BAM, the storm raged and then gone Pain ensued on and on day after day I suffered and the words started to grow They were forming inside my soul to shine To one day be let out from down below Now to relieve any pain that does come I reach into my soul filled with passion As though there are many storms in my life Words take me out of them with compassion So as each storm that comes I have my words I use them to write my poetry scene To relieve the storm’s heartache within me And then I share it, which becomes a dream

    Interesting work that you have penned..Writing is a good way to deal with what is happening in our life..Sorry to hear of your grandmother's passing..That is hard to have to deal with when we love someone..I had thought about you and wondered if everything was okay..Thanks for stopping by..I will see if I can repair my poem..I don't know how I did that..Sara
