I enjoy the world we live in. What I do to help people is research this means more then just studying books, but I watch people and talk to them and ask them questions. I learn so much from others and nature. We are here to notify and help others live to the fullest. I hope this poem will give you some insight to yourself and maybe ask the questions.

To Lift Your Head:
When you look down through your chest, do you know what that means?

This powerful poem speaks to the heart of sadness of the past, it’s impact and grief, as well as an undertone of hope that we all need to hear. The beautiful visual brings the words to life. This is what poetry can bring to a healing mind and soul. Words have the power to unlock what is subconscious within us and bring it to the surface. Poetry can serve as an outlet for transforming pain into purpose. We can write ourselves out of darkness and illuminate human potential.

By accepting what we’ve been through, we accept that we can heal from it- one word at a time. Critique by Katie Moran who is An Author, advocate, poet, creativity coach, and social entrepreneur.
