I Am Proud

This is a poem that I wrote recently about wishing the best for someone who broke my heart. A lot of people respond to pain with hatred, but I find that responding with love is more therapeutic. Good people can cause you pain, but that doesn't mean that they are a bad person.

Letter from the Ones Who Hurt Me

This is a poem that I wrote last night while walking down the city sidewalks in the cold after a run. It is from the point of view of the people who have hurt me, as if they are possessing me to write a goodbye letter that I never received from any of them.

Stronger than You Know

This is a poem that I wrote recently for someone that I love who often thinks that they are much weaker than they are, not even realizing their own strength and potential that they display on a daily basis. It is a reminder for her that she doesn't hear from anyone else, including herself. She is a beautiful bird and a strong woman and inspires me greatly.
