On this particular Tuesday morning between the hours of 2:00am and 4:00am my body refused to sleep. I was restless. My brain wrestling with my heart to try to make sense of what my world had become when a poem just fell from me – there is no other way to describe it (believe me, I sat here trying to find a less crazy way to put that- I just couldn’t). I do not regularly write poetry; I cannot even think of the last time I had thought to do so. Sure, I would categorize myself as a creative (I’m human, aren’t we born creatives?) but, poetry was an unfamiliar avenue that I had never really held a road map to. But, on that early, cold morning, my feelings needed a new place to live, and that was the shape they took. I had no choice in the matter, really.

Being creative is good for the mind, body and soul. However, it may feel difficult to reach that creative part of ourselves and there’s a reason for that.
