Dope Souls

Have you ever felt enlightened?

All your senses heightened

Where you no longer feel frightened

Where you can stop yourself from crying

Your throat no longer feels like it’s being tightened

Where you’re still trying

But not as hard

Because you’re no longer off guard

Your thoughts aren’t always blurred

Have you ever felt enlightened?

All your senses heightened

When you no longer feel violent

And you stay real to yourself no matter the environment

My name is Glory Castillo. I have been writing poetry since a very young age. Being an only child, I needed to find a way to process pain alone. I believe poetry is a form of art, expression and therapy. It helps me cope and it also makes me happy when other people can relate to it. Being in the health care field, gives me a better understanding of how important it is to let your mind relax and your thoughts flow. Poetry is my therapy.
