// When I Spoke //

It has always been important to me to write from all angles of an experience.
Not about a feeling or emotion but from it.
You have to crawl inside the fragile ribs of that place and inhabit it, whether it be in the shadow or the light, and let it be what it is. Let it speak what needs to be spoken. And then carry its message into the words.

Some people told me my dark was too dark.
Some people told me my light was too light.

So very few could understand that within one person grow the gardens of all shades and colors.
But learning to explore this truth about ourselves without judgment is how we heal, this is how we accept, this is how we deepen the love, strengthen it.
That is how writing teaches empathy and wisdom and grit.

And if you find someone who listens, who welcomes all of it, well, that’s just everything.

Treasure that one.

    Thanks, Allison. You are so right. I have been working on writing from my feelings, emotions, and experiences. Each time a complete a writing I know I have healed in some way. I have read this a couple of times already and will continue to read so I do not forget as I explore my life and experiences with others.

      Hello dear Tanya,
      thank you so much for taking the time to read, connect and offer such a beautiful comment. It means the world to me to know this serves you well in your creative life, and that you would like to keep it fresh in your memory. 🙂 If you would like to have the poem you see in the photo as a keepsake for your writing space (desk, wall, vision board, etc. . .) it is available now in my online shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/AllisonMariePoetry
      I love how you say “Each time a complete a writing I know I have healed in some way.” I feel exactly the same, my friend. Sending you much love and gratitude. ❤
