A purpose of her poetry

What she can't say Can't speak With her tongue aflapping She dashes on white paper With blue or black or red ink Not a ship in a bottle Her sails unfurled Traveling the seas of her tears Happy and sad and all of the above Love and hate and sorrow and fear She kisses them all And leaves them here To find their own way So that she is free Light Less her heavy burden and thus Able to lift the load of others

my poetry is my letter to the world. and i know people are reading my letters because they write me back. and when i read those letters i discovered something. and that is as i read those letters over and over i was being worshiped and i loved it and regreted it also. because worship is for God
