The Beginning of My BS is a poetic collection that explores the roller coaster of emotions and experiences that accompany adolescence
I write when I am filled with emotion
When I am sad
When I am angry
I write because I am not good at talking about my feelings
I don’t like seeming weak in the eyes of others.
If I talk I might cry
And if I cry I might create an ocean
So I will continue to waste ink
And keep moving this pen along this paper till I am numb and there are no more tears to cry.
This work of poetry takes readers on a personal journey of pain, love, and self-expression. It finds a way to your heart and reignites a feeling of strength. The author craftily grabs a hold of emotions, shakes them up, and leaves them to heal.
