Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

First, let me say thanks for taking the time to read through my poetry. There are a lot of ways you could spend your time, and I’m honored that you chose to spend some time with me. I will never profess to be a great poet; I just like to write. If you like to write too, I hope you will share your poetry with the world, no matter how terrifying the thought. Poems are the threads that tie us all together. They are what remind us of our own humanness, and they make us vulnerable to the core. Sometimes we need those reminders that it’s ok to be human, it’s ok to be vulnerable, and it’s ok to pull back the curtains around the windows of our thoughts and let some light shine in.

This collection of poetry stems from my own struggle with the darkness of depression, and my ultimate passage into the light of much happier times. Yeah, it’s cliché. I know.

I hope the messages inside inspire you to write your own poetry, to be kind to yourself, and to never lose hope, not even in your darkest days. There will always be a source of light in your darkness. You just have to find it.
