I don’t have the energy or the time to do all the things I need to do, all the things I want to do, and so inevitably, I have to prioritize and things don’t get done

Keywords: personal

I feel as though my life has built specifically to this point. There’s an urgency I can feel in my body; it’s been there for a long time and I think it’s made of a lot of different things, but right now it feels like everything I’ve ever been through has turned to poetry in my blood and I just need to get it all out and onto the fucking page. Some of it is trauma pushing its way to the surface. Some of it is the result of therapy and trying to heal the trauma. Some of it is a rush of energy in the aftermath of graduation. But all of it feels like a ton of poetry crawling around inside of me, waiting to get free.
