“When I Write”

 

by Mignon Middleton

 

When my soul is restless, with

Emotions left unexpressed

My paper becomes a counselor

Who simply listens, as

My soul escapes through my pen, whose

Tears flow like a crying baby

Demanding to be heard, and to be held

And as my words escape, healing flows

Like honey soothing my soul

Restoring me back to peace
