Words - A Poem


I always knew I had them in me

The words

They would tumble through my mind

With a force, an insistence that I let them out.

And yet, I kept them hidden

Fear that they would mean nothing, ill chosen

Inarticulate

My fear kept me silent.

Until the fear became my inarticulation

And it was ‘speak’

Or be crushed by a life of ‘What If?’

And the words became my hope, my joy, my belief

The words now form peaceful rivers in my mind

Giving voice to joys long forgotten

And I am free
