A shade under a tree,
With a soft warm breeze,
That’s where I am whenever I write,
It’s the only place everything feels so right.
I can be who I am and not lie,
I can say everything that’s on my mind,
Sometimes others would sit with me,
And together we’d be completely free.
It’s the only place I find peace,
Contemplate everything that’s inside me,
All the emotions that I feel,
Find their way on paper with ink.
This is why I write poetry,
It’s the only place I can be me,
It’s where I am most free,
And where I am most happy.
