It’s no secret that I have found creativity a saving grace. Painting and writing have always been salvations for me, and the link between my artwork and my stories is poetry. I have written it since I was a child and I still find it a blessing to be able to pen my thoughts in such a way.
In the following illustrated version of my poem “By Poetry,” I talk about the importance of allowing poetry to pull you from your bad moods, from your pain, and sometimes even, from the bed you wish you hide in.
This poem can be found in my book, Poiema.
