Speak your mind

I’m sick and tired of being misunderstood

you call me stubborn; I just know what I want, there’s a difference

you like to hold in, I speak my mind, it’s a matter of preference

you think I’m not nice because I speak my mind or maybe you call me emotional

the way you think, to me, it’s so irrational

I’m not sure what you think about your mind, but my thoughts are valuable

they can become either extremely tragical or extremely magical

that’s why my mind I won’t let you shut

I’m not saying that what I’m saying is the truth, I’m just saying I’ll always say the truth about how I feel

I’m not scared, it’s not a big deal, my thoughts and words you will never steal

I’ll keep expressing until I heal

I’m real, it’s so surreal how many people don’t appreciate realness

I’m not sure if it’s a weakness or an illness

I just know that when I speak my mind my tongue feels the sweetness

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.
