It’s been 6 weeks since I’ve picked up blogging again and it has felt like coming home. With how crazy-hard life has been these last few years, I haven’t really felt…settled in a long time. So having this little corner of the internet up and going again has been really special, and I’m happy to say that I’m now feeling ready to bring back another piece of myself that I’ve had hidden away for a really long time…my poetry. Well, I don’t know if “poetry” is the correct word, but it’s the little words, often rhyming and sometimes with melodies, that I use to express little (or big) pieces of my heart. It’s the form of writing that helps me work through, process, express, and find healing from painful things that I otherwise don’t always know how to talk about or work through. It’s always been a strange and beautiful thing to me how a simple rhyme can help me tap into my biggest hurts and deepest fears and help me bring clarity and healing from them. It’s also really special to me because it’s a way to be real and feel heard without having to explain anything or even show my words to anyone, because the simple act of writing them is enough.
Poetry is just really healing, so whether it’s old songs or new little expressions, I’m really happy to have a place to share them again ❤
