I’m tired of pretending

I’m tired of pleasing

My thoughts are bout to start releasing

Out of this chaotic mind

Not even being dramatic is making me blind

Do you know how long I’ve been trying to unmask

It’s a tough task

And it always makes me feel like I’m under attack

All this time I been fearing the wrong enemy

All this time I didn’t know I was the enemy

Can you imagine what it’s like

To be your own fear

How could that not be seen

It’s out of hand to a certain degree

It’s a matter of how free you want to be

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.
