Is off to a great start as I become more than I thought possible.
Writing has always been the one thing I could connect with.
The one thing that saves me from me.
The one thing I crave the most right now beside God and a more straightforward path.
But the struggle as a writer is worth it when a piece feels like home when all your emotions and hopes are in it.
So as I hit publish and put my poetry out there in a community that hasn’t known me for the last five years.
I feel vulnerable and joy and awaken that this isn’t the last they will see of me.
But, I begin to wonder am I to keep blogging when I feel this disconnect.
But yet people keep coming to see my work.
So is it me that is disconnected from writing as it’s been so long?
And maybe it’s all above, and I’ve neglected myself to please them all.
In the end, I’ve lost myself, and who knows how long it will take to find her again
