I am a graduate from a diploma in applied writing, and I have found that my calling is poetry.
My first poem
I have spent so long locked in the dark that I struggle to find the light,
I feel like I spend my life alone feeling the pain of endless suffering,
but then you came into my life.
I no longer feel locked away,
I finally feel accepted for who I truly am,
you didn’t ask me to change,
you like me just the way I am.
When I am feeling down you turn my frown upside down,
you make me smile,
you make me laugh,
but one thing for sure,
you don’t make me cry.
I never quite felt this way about anyone before,
and yet I can’t tell you,
because I am afraid.
Afraid if I tell you,
you won’t feel the same.
So I will keep my feelings locked up inside.
I will admit this is very hard for me,
but I will be strong,
and move forward with a smile on my face.
Because as long as I’m here,
I can’t be put down,
and cannot feel pain.
Please let me know what you think of my poem, I would love the feedback
