Poetry is such a powerful tool when it comes to dealing with emotions. Feeling them profoundly and then realising them by writing them down brings immense relief. It helps to look at what is happening from a distance and a different angle, providing resolution and possible solutions. It untangles tangled thoughts and feelings. It helps to let go.
Here is one of the poems I have written to release my emotions:
My Little Boat Lost between thunderstorms, I find myself caught in the crossfire of words. Cannon fire of misunderstanding shouts loudly every day on the once peaceful sea. My little boat crashes among the waves of not my pain. Stay strong. Stay strong. I hear the whisper carried by the wind. So I summon the magic of the Elements. Their presence surrounds me tightly: Oxygen, droplets, flames and dirt in a wind whirl ring of power – I stay strong.
