Writing has been my friend for a few years, not necessarily because I consider myself a great writer, but because it is was my voice awakening in the darkness of addiction. I found rebirth in my writing as a safe place to share my thoughts, feelings, and even my anger. Exploring alternate creative expressions, guided me to understand what I liked and what I didn’t like about writing, and most importantly, being comfortable with my decisions. I gravitate to poetry naturally since for me it is the easiest form of personal renewal in the flow of thought and narration. This is the world I want to be part of on a consistent basis. The elevated sense of creativity is my continual bridge to freedom and growth. Living in my creative realm lets me explore the reality I have now created versus the delusion I have been used to.
