Poetry is such a freeing nostalgia, a calming silence, and an emotional journey.
I have been writing poetry since I was 14 and a friend of mine from middle school was killed in a car accident. I used poetry to express myself. I later used it to help me weed through all the bullshit that came with adolescence such as bullying, love, heartbreak and finding yourself.
It has always been something that moved me. Words spoke to me in a way that weren’t just syllables and sounds, but in emotions and sights. Words have always been able to lift me from their pages and take me to the deepest and most soulful places inside my imagination.
