A Poem: Your Green Tin Roof

I hear the name of this church and fear and anger encompass my very body. I'm an embodiment of both anger and empathy, but I am yet to see the very roots that I had wither away as I process through my own hate.

I once was a happy person who suffered from shame, but was so ignorant that I was happy with everything that I was. I could use a word like deconstruct or reconstruct to express the transition I've had, … Continue reading A Poem: Simplicity
