“Resilience” is a poem that highlights the importance of professional mental health wellness during this global hardship. I aim to encourage others to feel their emotions and find healthy ways to release their anxieties, whether it’s writing, dancing or talking to a safe mental health professional. My poem is all about creating an intentional space for one’s mental health.

You stand tall,
You stand proud.
Know that this is temporary,
Know that we are all changing.
This dark cloud will pass,
Rays of sun will soon fill the sky.
Every step you take counts,
Every breath releases and consumes.
We have been here before,
And came out on the other side.
You are worthy,
Even when you don’t speak, sit still and dream silently.
