I Write Poems

I write poems
because I believe in words
I believe in feeling
things deeply
examining the world around me
examining myself
stirring up the emotions
and throwing the words that bubble
to the surface
of who I am
who I have been
and who I am meant to be
at the paper in front of me
and seeing what sticks

I write poems
to free myself
from me
to give myself
to you
to search my soul for you
and share the lessons I and we learn
exposing the truth of what I have lived
the hope of who I am becoming
writing the words that are
the double edged sword
of joy and pain
that life delivers as twins
birthed from the living of life
surviving and thriving in the sharing
of simple words 
that say so much
