This too

will pass . . .

It starts as a feeling

A temporary moment in time

It will pass

That thing won't last

But the gettin thru

Is what gets you

Cause in that moment

It feels unbearable

Words un-shareable

Cause you believe no one else understands

And when I have that pen in my hand

Everything lands

It all falls in place

I have the time and space

I’m allowed grace

To say

Words I would not speak out loud

Not to my friends . . . not to the crowd

My notebook doesn’t judge me

My pen will always love me

Because i give them life

When moments aren’t great

I’m free to articulate

And understand the feeling . . .

It's just a feeling

A temporary moment in time

It will pass

That thing won't last

But the gettin thru

Is what gets you

Cause in that moment

Words become your best friend

And you’ll be whole again

Poetry

Sometimes i write with tears

Trailing tears

making their way down

My brown

Cheeks

Tears that leak on the pages

Tears that soak through the ink

And i think . . . I’m grateful

I’m overwhelmed

I’m humbled

I’m objective

And that situation becomes subjective

I can put things in perspective

Like

“Hey, Girl! . . . It’s not the end of the world.

You might be in your feelings like Chris Brown and Drake

But all it takes

Is a moment . . . don’t fight it

Just write it!

Those feelings

Those temporary moments in time

You’ll look back and see they passed

That thing didn’t last

You got thorough

No matter what you face

You will always have

YOU

And the opportunity to write

Something new

inspirational
