For My Eyes Only
Poem By Charmaine Williams
This is for my eyes only
The pressure to write is weighing down on me.
I just want to sit
And simply write without rhyme.
Allow these syllables to take flight
Like an Eagle soaring through the sky
Way, way up high.
I fear that my words won’t make sense
I met the person who inspired me today
And writing has been on my mind ever since.
Sometimes I have to write for me
When will I have time for me?
I have too many things,
Things, on me
Like school, work and family.
That’s why this write is for my eyes only
I feel somewhat of a weight lifted off me.
What is it that needs to come out?
I feel like I just need to shout.
That’s what I need time
Time to develop my rhyme.
I don’t have to sound like anybody else
My gift is uniquely for me
Just make sure my words are felt.
My words are powerful and filled with life
Who cares if I never make it on the mic.
My gift will make room for me.
I’ll continue to express myself
And handle with care, the hand I was dealt.
For those who can’t understand what it is like
I need this pen
Like I need oxygen
This is my outlet to let my creative juices flow
When you find your talent
You will know
This poem may not be one of my best
But I had to let myself flow
Without a second guess.
