Express what you mean

Express yourself –

what do you mean when you say

you’re feeling fine when you’re not?

Express yourself through art

and not through words that change with tongues.

Let your thoughts

 

out of you now –

there’s nothing to be afraid of.

It’s okay to hide between the

lines, pen on paper, heart in words,

that’s what poetry always was.

It’s okay if the canvas turns messy,

and you gotta struggle to fix it up,

‘cause that’s what life is all about.

You don’t have to stay trapped in place.

Warm the cold and hardened clay, time

to transform your sculpt. You know the way,

just don’t let your insides

 

burn you.

Too late. Irreversible.

 

So express yourself –

what do you mean when you say

you’re feeling fine when you’re not?

Don’t let it build up inside you.
