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


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
