A Poem by Morgan|Intelligent|witty|gemini

Part of me wants to scream...I want to scream out to the
world to get them to understand.
I want to scream until there isn't a single breath left in my lungs, until they sting with the 
energy I've expanded and my words hang in the air
for all to hear.
To be a poet you must write with a certain passion
live with the satisfaction that you can constantly assemble
phrases, words and lines
Because to truly write you must feel.
you must freely write your emotion
you must learn to let go of your darkest secrets
allow the words to flow from your mind
emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
they cannot comprehend why I write,
I am working for inner peace,
fighting for the freedom of my soul
Writing is my form of release, because sometimes
poetry is not a turning loose of emotion but an
escape of emotion 
moments when I start writing and yet know
what am I even to write of
poetry is about discovering, just like happiness
these aren't things ready made
we fear what we know but don't understand
we are loose at the seems, pretending to be fine
