She finds herself within the markings of graphite between the thin

 

blue lines on a sheet of paper 

 

Her words giving her strength like the cedar wood of her pencil 

 

Regaining freedom throughout the spilling of unsaid words flying

 

through her head 

 

There...with her pencil and paper...she reaches out to grasp the world

 

she so dearly longs for 

 

The voices echoing beneath her 

 

Strangers fighting to keep her down, to keep her in their control 

 

"You won't get far" 

 

"You can't do it" 

 

"It's only a hobby" 

 

"There's better things to do" 

 

"Do this instead.."

 

"No one will read it " 

 

She stripped herself of society, and all it's beliefs dying to devour her

 

Naked in her truth and pure natural in her existence...

 

she held onto her passion 

 

her spirit and wings 

 

 

She is the graphite

 

the page

 

and the soul of all her words
