Breathe Permission

Dear Poet

Dear Poet,

Breathe permission

on my heart

allow its fullness

to spill onto pages

with passion’s force

pushing to heights

I only thought

a dream

Open its doors

freeing dormant years

behind bars of society

crying release

from painful incarceration

Bestow the gift of abandon

unrestrained imagination

pouring through pen

without thoughts 

of judgement

only thoughts

of the privilege

to exist…

Dear Poet,

Breathe permission
