I had a stressful month personally and it was interesting to read what I wrote on specific days and re-live how I was feeling. Some of my poems were light hearted and some were dark. Each one allowed me a way to vent and get things off my chest in a creative way, in a way that helped me understand some of my frustration, anger and loneliness as well as be reminded of the many joys I have in my life.

Vexations of my responsibilities allowing me to
Experience a little peace and makes me a
Thank you for the month long therapy session Lara. You were an answer to prayers that I didn't know I was going to ask for.
