Free To Fly (Poem)

As the leave’s blow away,
never to be seen again.
So are my thoughts of you
scattered in the wind.

I use to think about you.
Like the wind,
you blew away.
Nothing left to see.

A breeze against my face.
Leaves scattered afar.
Trees swaying back and forth.
All this just the effects of the wind.

I can’t hold you, smell you
or even taste you on my lips.
You blew into my life
and out in one breath.

As the leave’s blow away,
never to be seen again
so are my thoughts of you
lost in the wind.

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.
