Poem

Prisoner in my own mind

I have always used writing as a tool to lighten my mood, and always believed that my pen and paper were the only ones who would understand me. However, very recently, I shared this poem with a friend, to tell her how I felt. And the experience of sharing was very positive. She suggested that I share the poem with It’s Ok To Talk.
