Safe writing isn’t
or angry shiver
of howling pain
the shock and bewildering chance
the pastured fences
let me go.
It’s never safe until you let it out.
Journal prompt: Write about how you feel with not bringing issues to the surface. Do you like to keep things calm and serene when you would rather yell and scream instead? Are you a peacekeeper within your family? Do you avoid confrontation? Do you use a journal, your writing, or another art form to deal with emotions?
