Reasons why I’m here

1 Nov

I am here because I love poetry

because I love being heard

listened to.

with my own words.

with my own voice.

with my own head.

I am here in this warm,

orange-chaired room beating fast

with people who are yet to tell

me their names,

again and

again.

whom I am yet to know their favorite color of

their favorite crisp flavor

how they advocate their hugs.

I am here because I find acceptance like no other.

because the bus took me here.

because I was woke up this morning.

because its Autumn yet again.

here because I am.

here because I’m not.

here because my head is as much as of a mess as my bedroom.

here because my heart holds  teenage angst as my bedroom.

here because I should because  this should be my bedroom.

here because it isn’t.

here because… they found a little mouthy’ness in me.

here.

The sort of freewrite that my heart can not bring to edit.  First Session back, I’ve missed you guys, all – a lot.
