New poem by Aneesh Kotru
I tried capturing the feeling of nostalgia which is imagined in this poem by a number of different things brought together in the same instance.
This poem was initially written for a patient of mine; a very talented artist who was terrified to share her gift with the world out of fear of self-exposure and rejection.
We feel so bound, by invisible chains of choice,
Choices to resent and choices to rejoice,
Choices that shape the timeline of our being,
Giving sound to reason and courage a voice.
