Free Writing

I was told that free writing allows one to express emotions one has been hiding

But realized that free writing forced me to face my reality

It has forced me into spaces I didn’t know my mind could occupy

Spaces that my mind never knew existed

But these spaces have always existed

They just needed my recognition

And I relate that to myself

I have always existed

But have recently discovered that I constantly need people’s recognition and validation

So in this form of free writing

I have tried to free my mind from this box it has placed itself in

I have tried to free myself from this mentality that I have never been good enough

I have tried to free myself from the chains I placed on my wrists and ankles

It is only in myself that I can find those keys

In those dark crevices in my mind

In the deepest parts of my soul

In my very being

That I can free myself from this notion that I have never been good enough

It is in free writing this poem in 5 minutes

That I have truly discovered my ability to write

To be unedited

Unfiltered.

Raw.

True.

To be me and to be content with the product that I am

To be content with myself in totality

It is in free writing this piece

That I took the first step to my freedom

To my acceptance of who I am
