    I am awakened by fears that have me bounded
    to concerns that are so unfounded
    as my heart palpitates with great intensity
    while I attempt to calm the animosity
    that has dwelled in me for so long,
    I just want to shout and say "Please, be gone!"
    I keep a troubled mind everyday
    which makes it hard for me to convey
    what deeply lies inside of me
    as it literally weakens my integrity.
    I want to unshackle the chains that hold me constricted
    and allow my heart to no longer be restricted
    so I can sincerely accept the comforting words
    that in my youth I hardly heard
    while growing up in a world of discomfort
    in order to not dis others comfort.
    I'm beginning to learn love's respect
    instead of trying to reach and dissect.
    Now, I am looking in the mirror
    where my life I see more clearer
    as I slowly free my mind from negativity
    that wrought me and diminshed my positivity.
    I need to love myself first
    in order to satisfy that thirst
    that lies inside my heart
    knowing this is a very large part
    in releasing my everyday fears
    that sometimes appear in spontaneous tears.
    I welcome the outpouring flow of rain
    and open my arms to cleanse my pain
    from all the calamities that have me bounded
    only to discover they were unfounded
    as I open my heart to receive true love,
    the only love that would be blessed from Heavens above.

    Tries to spark only hears cries in the dark and lies are not art

    Look rhyming stable as a dining table can sit six with a legit

    Remix, I’ll put hardcore boulders on your shoulder watch you split

    And fall but overall a nice post but I eat rice most of the time

    Feeling you here poet, the anguish in your words, yet, the willingness in the end to open oneself up to love. Touching piece.

    Sister...
    this part of your poem
    reached in and massaged my soul
    as if it knew...
    ......as if it knew
    and it did...
    In order to have a relationship with poetry...
    there must always be relativity...
    Consider me...completely relating :wink:

    Awesome work!

    touched

    I am so glad that I have touched many of you with my words. This poem was written out of frustration and I plan on accepting and showing love to others who enter my life.

    Thank you!! Thank you!!
