Sometimes...
The feelings in my heart refuse to be quieted. They roll off my fingertips and onto the page in a flurry of ink.
Sometimes...
There is not need to be quieted.

Sometimes

by ivoryannalise

Sometimes...

I feel like the world is against me. Like the whole stratosphere will collapse in on me.

Sometimes...

I feel like I cannot take a single breath. Like the air is being pushed from my desperate lungs.

Sometimes...

The tears do not want to stop flowing. Like the tallest waterfall in the world is flowing down my face.

Sometimes...

My heart does not match the words that spill from my mouth. Like it has a mind of its own that is out to get me too.

Sometimes...

All I can hear are the whispered judgments of those who do not matter. Like they are bloody screams to my worn ears.

But, sometimes...

The world is not against me. Like it is lifting me up with every step I take.

Sometimes...

The breaths will not stop filling my lungs. Like little soldiers pushing me towards my ultimate goal.

Sometimes...

The tears stop and are replaced with the sunny rays of my smile. Like even the sun would be jealous of my smile's hope.

Sometimes...

My heart gives my words the courage to shout out to the world. Like I am the one that stands up and fights.

Sometimes...

All I can hear are the shouted appraisals of the people who mean the most. Like a big family full of people who really care.

And sometimes...

No matter the day: I know that through the ups and downs, I will always have a pen in my hand.

@bernardtwindwill That is great! You keep it up! I have been trying to get myself to think that way. I want to write for myself, and not for the audience. I want to be happy with my writing. Thank you so much! I'm glad you thought so because that was not even what I was going for. I'm happy it turned out this way.

I think that when I write it, it doesn't matter whether or not somebody reads it, The only thing that matters is that I wrote it. You wrote a beautiful poem/essay on really the therapeutic value of a pen. I loved it.!!!
