Sad but Dreaming
by Amy LV
Students - I write poems for all kinds of reasons: to be silly, to express fascination, to play with words, to wonder, to describe what I see in my everyday life. Sometimes, though, I simply write about feelings - feelings I am having now, feelings I see others living with, and feelings I have felt before. Writing about our feelings helps us make sense of them, helps us become more human.
We don't always have to show our writing-about-feelings with others, but just getting something on paper can help us figure out what we think, can help us know what to do next. This is just one reason that I keep a notebook, to have a place to keep my feelings.
