Little did i know, there were poems i needed to write,
Allowing my feelings to be known that were once locked up tight.
Like a beautiful gift that is already given,
Just waiting for me to untie the bright, shiny ribbon.
No longer to cause shame and from all others hidden,
My words being true...but often guilt ridden.
Once those words were released from the chains of my heart,
It allowed me to move on and from the negative depart.
Now i can focus on others with wide open eyes,
And listen more intently to hear all of their cries.
For we all have hopes and dreams we are eager to share,
If only we had a friend who listened with care.
So if you are feeling blue...or maybe buoyant and joyous,
Sing along with me, together lets begin by singing the chorus!
