Safe Writing Isn’t



Safe writing isn’t
if not

a cloudburst

or angry shiver

of howling pain

the shock and bewildering chance

of fate
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?
