At The End Of My Pen

I stood at the edge of a mountain
wondering if I could fly

I battled the beast of cancer
fearful I might die

I traveled a million miles
looking for contentment
in the world

And I’ve always come back
to the end of my pen

I ran from evil carrying chains
and scaled concrete walls
to survive

I gave birth to angels
and witnessed
the miracles of life

I’ve hidden my light
in a dark
safe
cave
out of fear
of disapproval
anger
and rage

And I’ve always come back
to the end of my pen

I found my soul mate
when our lives intertwined
sharing secrets
dreams
and love
at the end of my pen

The end of my pen
where stories are told
lives unfold
and perspective
comes from rebelling

The world I create
the risks I take
the rules I break
then healing comes
at the end of my pen

Insecurity strangled me
Doubt silenced my dreams

Chocolate came
unlocked my heart
and stories
poured out
for all to see

The search is over
I’m finally home
content
in my own skin

Excited to explore
the worlds inside of me

Yet curious
what lies
at the end of my pen
