    Notebook

    The notebook beneath my hands
    holds all my secrets
    My fears and my hopes
    My dreams and my nightmares
    My pride and my shame

    The pen between my fingers
    bleeds ink onto the pages
    My thoughts flow through it
    My emotions flood through it
    My feelings shoot through it

    The pages enclosed in it
    are tattooed with the years
    My childhood marked on them
    My youth etched on them
    My adolescence carved on them

    This notebook is filled
    with things that make me
    My history
    My present
    My life

    I might not bespeak much
    That doesn’t mean I don’t feel much
