Walk Away Merrily (Poem)

Please let me explain as I attempt to make it ever so plain

Words to me are my solace although my own is never flawless

I love to play with every word by creating and sharing pithy blurbs

Some people laugh and some smile unless that person is boring and in denial

Take a seat and take a listen you just might come out a whole new person

With my words sometimes imploring but never with the intention of being boring

So listen well and listen carefully for my heart’s desire is that you walk away merrily.

One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since.

I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to.

My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people.

I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through.

And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”.

I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
