Free Writing

Stacey Joy

Writing without restraints
The freedom to go with my own ebb and flow
Knowing my words will land
In the safe spaces of your hands
Fearless and bold you say I am
But I still hide and seek myself, my story
Writing with you
Unleashes more of me
Showing me how to be proud
Unafraid to reveal a few cracks
Some big gaping holes
That I gently fill
One poem at a time

Grateful for my struggles
My obstacles and issues
My blessings and joy
They strengthen and sharpen me
Grateful for poetry, poets, and you!
“This is where
Floating rainbow hearts
Ascend to the ceiling”
