I've come to express myself through paper and ink. It's the only way I can escape reality, the only way I can think. It helps reveal the pain I feel inside. And I can elucidate all the emotions I hide. This may be my first poem, but it won't be my last. Because from now on this is how I will explain my life, present and past. This will be a way of showing how I feel. Because since I wrote this down, nothings ever felt so real.
