You are a survivor and healing is an ongoing process. Poetry is one way to explore the healing process and build yourself up through self-expression. Poetry is one of the most beneficial forms of therapy. The art of writing poetry is an amazing tool for healing and personal growth. It provides unique opportunities of self-discovery and self-love. Life and energy are discovered through the words of poetry. The writing of poetry gives us the chance to discover how our vulnerabilities and strengths thrive together. Poetry gives voice to what is wounded in our lives, and has the power to guide us through rough times. Poetry profoundly heals and transforms. Poetry is life!
