#giveusbackourwords | a poem for freedom

July 11, 2020

FREE WRITING

28

i joined this site
for three reasons only:
the community
the writing
and interacting
through a mix
of both

i joined this site
to vent
and stayed
for the support
from this community

this site
has gotten me through
my darkest times
because i had
freedom
over my words

but no more
because apparently
freedom
only applies when
we're over eighteen

now we're limited to
poetry
nonfinction
and fiction
but where shall i turn
when i want to meet
new users through
an appreciation post

where shall i turn
when i want to
be inspired
by a contest

where shall i turn
for reviews
when i can't ask
on a review post

no this is not a blog site
but we shouldn't be silenced
because we're human
and need a community
to write beside

so the last thing
i want to say
is that write the world
is a beautiful place
so let's keep it that way
because community posts
can save another person
like they saved
me
lowercase intentional

i know poems won't convince the admins, but i emailed them respectfully, and so should you. give your perspective and come up with a compromise. i feel like the admins don't truly know how it feels to be in this community, and how beneficial community building is to everyone. This site is something that will always be dear to my heart because it was here for me to vent in the times when my mental health was awful. and that was because of the community that had my back through community posts like contests and review pieces, and also appreciation posts.

    Replying: I'm glad! and I really love writing these pieces. The information just kind of felt like blobs of useless stuff in my brain, so I figured, why not write it all down :)
