I wanted to write a poem,
A poem explaining my deepest thoughts,
A poem filled with my life.
The poem I wanted to write came to me suddenly,
Felt like it was talking to me.
I wanted to write a poem when I was at my worst,
I wanted to write a poem when I was the happiest,
Yes, I wanted to write a poem for myself,
To comfort myself, to know.
I wrote that poem,
It made me laugh,
It made me blush and happy,
No matter how lame I wrote,
No matter how unskilled it was, it was mine,
It was beautiful to me,
It made me think I can do it, I just need to keep going,
It made me realize how much I love this moment,
How much I care,
Yes, I wanted to write a poem.
