This entire poem is outstanding, but this line spoke loudly and insistently to me. Too often, I am an in-the-box type of writer, always coloring in the lines, more concerned about technicalities than creativity and self-expression due to years of business writing. Poetry is teaching me to self- define words and to allow my voice to led by creative freedom.
