a poem

is a new promise to myself

if I feel angry,


if I feel frustrated,


if I feel sad,


if I feel excited!


I want to capture all of the experiences where I felt and lived and I grieved and I weeped.

I want them all

taken down

for my future self

to reflect back on.

I’m doing this for me.

And I deserve this time for myself.
