A poem that I just wrote for me.

#poetry #amwriting The girl who speaks with poetry by Tracy Diane Miller

The girl who speaks with poetry
Each and every day
With the rhythm of verse
The girl who speaks with poetry
She wants to convey
The memories of the past
In her soul preserved in time
Then words dance around her head
To pause as they form a rhyme
The girl who speaks with poetry
She is a lover of words
Then the images that dance around her head
Become the emotions desperate to be heard
The girl who speaks with poetry
Where solitude is never a foe
For in her quiet reflection
The girl who speaks with poetry
Must surely know
Words should exist to comfort
Compassion wields great power
The girl who speaks with poetry
Will write a poem at any hour
The girl who speaks with poetry
Do you know how often she wants to cry
So instead of tears
She will write a poem
To soothe her heart is why
The girl who speaks with poetry
Others see her as strange
They feel that it is odd that she wants solitude
So this girl they want to change
Yet the girl who speaks with poetry
The essence of her who many refuse to see
Would rather live her life writing poetry
Then becoming someone she would rather not be
