the writing in me

At night when I would dream

It was as if I was watching it all unfold

Like a movie was playing in my head

I was not present

I was watching things happen to me

I see in some of my writing I have done the same thing

Using "she"

Instead of "I"

When the feelings are mine

The experience happened to me

It is my heart and soul that is speaking

When I started coming into my own

Feeling comfortable and confidante in my own skin

My dreams shifted

Things were unfolding and I was right there in it

I was no longer watching from above

I know I have to do the same with my writing

I need to own it

Feel confidante in it

Even if it is extremely vulnerable and raw

I need to lay it out there

Because that is me
