As an introvert I quickly found a way to express my emotions and channel the world around me through my writing. It’s been therapeutic, painful and exhilarating all at once. There’s something very difficult in putting down your emotions and thoughts. It is also empowering. I give them meaning and respect by acknowledging their presence but I can also throw denial out the window. I’ve recently decided to share some of these poems with others who may be interested. It has been terrifying; being completely vulnerable with very real emotions or interpretations of the world around me and hoping that someone can relate.
Here I am. Vulnerable. Exposed. Raw.
