The Voice in my Box


For many years 

debilitating thoughts 

made a home in my mind

No room at the inn, door locked 


I smiled in silence 

To an oblivious room 

All the while

My throat screaming 

For all the bad memories 

All the unfair nights

All the damn hurt!

the effects 

…and the cause 

Life played out and my lips 

….Obediently paused 


The drink of belief 

Made her way 

From my mouth to my feet 

Like a waking alien 

I have found my home again 

And all that was shrunken inside 

Lost the urgency to cling and hide 

Rising in hope

Yes this freedom speaks

Oh honey…

This freedom sings!

She flys on flames atop of wings

And the music is sweeter than ever 

My voice, my speakers

Reign out 

Bleeding a glorious color

Onto white corners 

of my 

…Newly born feathers.

  1. The reinvention of one’s self is very invigorating. Outsiders often confuse this with us being lost but on the contrary it shows strength in the resolve to grow and be dynamic with the experiences we acquire. I’ll be looking forward to more of your writings!

  2. You were a vibrant inspiration in 2015. You made your mark. This comes through eloquently in this poem and the attention it has captured. My wish is that 2016 may open more vistas of creativity for you to continue to be a beacon to more and more people.
