Self expression is sometimes murdered when someone we value says we are doing it wrong.
Makes us stop and re-evaluate our process
Sometimes it hurts us to our very depths and we shutter to think we might not be good enough....

Ok, so you want to step inside my mind?

Figure out my process?
Do I first present myself?
SHOOT

This is MY BRAIN.
Strap yourself in.
Either relax or put YOUR thinking cap on.
You'll breeze through
or you'll go insane trying to understand.

For so long,

Writing

to me, was a free flow

Writing

was a river that would never run dry.
I didn't figure out which was sonnet
which was rhyme

or to whom it made sense
who would like or not like my work

all I knew was I was writing
and that was all I wanted or needed to worry about.

But People

Came into MY BRAIN

with a smack to say HEY and I was filled with controversy.

All like WHAT?
innocent big sad eyed and child like
shut down when they said

That is not what we want to read

Well, WHO GIVES A ...

SHIT?

if you don't like how I write exactly how I speak
or how my thoughts from my mind
don't relate to your beautiful life
or your perfection in your dreams.

I'm not WRITING for you anyway.

I am WRITING for ME
