Writing poems calms me down,

these rhymes serve as my lost and found;

Emotions I have but don't know are there,

come to the surface when the pen and paper pair.

How it happens? I don't know...

but I believe that it truly does show,

that the feelings that run very deep

are not laying dormant nor asleep -

They simply needed to be accessed, I just had to find the door -

now I have the way in, so I can enter and explore...

Being vulnerable scares me,

and letting people know my struggles and imperfections frightens me as well;

but maybe as I share my story, teach, learn, and grow, the worries will quell.
