I decided to do something a little different for this month’s column. I wrote a short poem, something I have never done before. It was interesting to try something new. Perhaps letting go of my emotions through a poetic piece of writing somehow feels liberating. Enjoy.
I am a child filled with emotion
a girl full of dreams
someone who watches the ocean
as if it were able to scream
scream the truth about the future
wondering if it’ll get any better
better than now better than this
even though now isn’t so bad
there’re even some moments of bliss
maybe I have to stop being sad
stop the wait
and take every moment to appreciate
appreciate what I have and what I can do
life passes by so fast if only you knew
we keep wanting something more
it makes it easy to miss an open door
one too many expectations
constantly seeking perfection
we always wind up sad or upset
the memories we must forget
what is to come? we don’t know
so why can’t we just let it all go?
cause maybe if we would just stop wishing
we could truly start living.
So to that I say, if one day you are bored, grab a pen and paper and just write. Let your emotions spill themselves on your page and perhaps you’ll create something beautiful. Don’t be scared to try something new because sometimes it’s those unexpected things that we do that make us discover who we truly are.
Hope you liked it xoxo
