This one’s for everyone who hurts. Your illness does not define you. Your past does not define you. They do not define you.
Turn your lemons into life lessons, gritted teeth into stardust, carry it with you always.You only have to remember it sometimes. Sometimes is enough.
Over the course of 2020, a select group of young writers were invited to take part in a year-long writing program at Story Factory. Their goal was to produce a collection of poetry. This is one of the poetry collections produced in these workshops. Story Factory gratefully acknowledges the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund for supporting the Year of Poetry 2020.
