Mind Of Cle - What Does Poetry Mean To Me?

What does poetry mean to me?

Poetry has been a staple in my growth and development when it comes to coping and self-expression. Definitely my go-to for self-care and mental health. When I was first diagnosed with depression and C-PTSD, I felt isolated due to the stigma surrounding mental health at the time. I found that writing down my thoughts and emotions in a poetic form was a therapeutic way to express myself. Poetry allowed me to release my feelings in a creative way and gave me a sense of relief and comfort.

Poetry, well writing in general has connected me to a community of people who also share a love for writing. Through this exploration, I was able to gain a deeper understanding of myself and my experiences. It was through poetry that I was able to find my voice again after being silenced for what felt like forever. I now celebrate my identity as a neurodivergent black woman who is not defined by her trauma, but empowered by her healing. I am grateful for the ability to express myself in written form. I pray that my words are a vessel to positively impact others experiencing difficult times.

Your strength and resilience is inspiring!

Your talents and abilities are unique and valuable.

You have the power to create the life you want.
