Writing is a cathartic process in which I find my voice in different facets of each poem. Poetry, is a unique discourse of reflections



No tears fall from eyes

No sad reflection of what could have been

Memories dashed to stone

Old songs don’t evoke passion

Life has a new clarity didn’t see before

Hidden behind closed metaphors

Strength from within replaced weakness

Sins washed away being born again

Hate waste of energy replaced with positivity

Tomorrow ushers in new beginnings

Yesterday vanished in the rain

Future I can say adios to pain

Adios to emotional hell

Adios to spirit weary and trodden under

Adios to the prison cell

Created by a demented warden

Adios, adios, adios, adios
