Poetry of People / 151

Today, we connected with Emma, 22, from Fullerton, Ca. 

"The mountain of clothes sleeping next to me feels like my lover

I think I'll clean my room tomorrow

I don't mind being single 

I've learned not to define myself with the smiles of another 

wanting to please

while I loose all my pleasure 

The greatest treasure is the peace that was within my solar plex or chest

as I sit in solitude & give my thoughts a rest 

I am my soul 

& my worth is constant 

I've done & do a lot of work 

to let myself feel whole 

Ah, to be happy. To be me."
