Poetry was always very important to me.  Poems spoke to my heart when my head wasn’t listening.  I think it is a lovely idea to have a poem in your pocket to share.  Many of my poems that I wrote I don’t share.  They express some of my darkest emotions.

I am like shattered glass
Cutting those who touch me
I have been broken
I am hard and sharp
People can see through me.
They know I can hurt them
I am never confronted
I am always walked around.
– Lori Gauntlet

This poem was on a poster that I placed over my bed in high school.  I had no memories at that time to tell me why I was like shattered glass.  I just knew that I was described by this poem.
