#NationalPoetryMonth – I Thought

Kai Love from The Pisces Life podcast just reminded me that this is National Poetry Month. There are some kids at my children's school who have been writing poetry every day, and I promised them that I would start again. Here is my poetry for the day. No filter, no stopping, just a free form poem.


I Thought


I thought

That if people saw me

For what I really was

They would shun me

Run from me

Mock me

Make me feel small

But what actually happened is

As I made myself into what others wanted me to be

I shunned me

Ran from me

Mocked me

And made myself feel small

So now I live with myself

And love myself

And ignore the outside.
