There has always been something deep inside my soul that has kept me going. Writing poetry allowed my soul to bleed, my soul spoke to me through the words on the pages.
Sometimes I run across something I’ve written long ago and I don’t remember pouring these words onto the paper. It is usually profound, honest and deeply moving.
Most of my best poetry has been penned while tears rolled down my face. When the ache in my heart can’t be expressed verbally or the pain is unbearable writing is the only release for the anguish.
I want to share the gifts I have been given. Each poem expressed something that my mouth could not utter. Each poem a letting of the painful emotions buried for decades. Words on a paper are safe, but it is time to share.
May every poem be a balm for another soul. needing to know they are not alone. Hopefully just knowing that another soul made it over to the other side will encourage other women to start their journey to healing.
