the writing in me


At night when I would dream
It was as if I was watching it all unfold
Like a movie was playing in my head
I was not present
I was watching things happen to me

I see in some of my writing I have done the same thing
Using "she"
Instead of "I"
When the feelings are mine
The experience happened to me
It is my heart and soul that is speaking

When I started coming into my own
Feeling comfortable and confidante in my own skin
My dreams shifted
Things were unfolding and I was right there in it
I was no longer watching from above

I know I have to do the same with my writing
I need to own it
Feel confidante in it
Even if it is extremely vulnerable and raw
I need to lay it out there
Because that is me
