Writing Makes Me Who I Am

writing materials

I used to be afraid
To write about what I am feeling
Because what came out
Was so dark, it made my skin crawl.
I stayed away from my notebooks,
I did not dare pick up a pen
Or even open a blank Word doc
On my laptop.
That was how scared I was.
But, now I am writing again.
Sometimes, the darkness seeps
Into my words and I let it.
I am doing this because I believe
It is part of my healing.
Part of the natural coping mechanism
Of my imbalanced brain.
I am writing again because this is who I am.
I will not let anything keep me away
From being who I’m supposed to be again.
