Artful Release

09 Jan




By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.


The pressure is building in my brain

A release! A release! Oh my I need a release!

Annoying voices my ears do hear

Like the flight of a mosquito buzzing a little too close

I swat at one but I can’t fight them all

So much tension

Pent up frustration

It seems at times my mind will explode

Or I lose all restraint and come to blows

Lend me your ear

So you can hear

The mountain of anxiety I must bear

Weeks and weeks

Months and months

Years and years of hidden tears

Brought about by age old fears

My release won’t come

It’s artfully hidden

So I continue with a desire of the driven

Artfully releasing what once was unwritten

    The noise of your art is the sweetest sound you’ll ever hear. Giving vent to it is the stuff magic is made of.
