My mind goes into stillness

Before it goes into illness

The darkness is giving me a million reasons

But it doesn’t give me the same fullness

A constant battle between what’s real and what’s vicious

My mind a little twisted

But never distracted from the vision

It was never about being in competition

It was more about listening to my intuition

It is never an easy transition

But it is a crucial mission

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.
