Everyone wants to be the best of themselves, but what we don't understand is that it's a process. Perfection can be achieved progressively through steps. The first step is realisation. Realisation of bad habits, realisation of negativity, realisation of one's self. Once you have realised all the negatives, then find solutions for them and start working on the improvements. With the mindset of 'everything is perfect', no improvements are going to happen. Keeping your eyes and ears open will help you not become ignorant but rather impactful for the world and overall, a better self; a step forward to perfection of oneself. Realise and raise awareness.
A Story Factory, Year of Poetry publication.
Year of Poetry is one of Story Factory’s most intensive programs. Throughout 2021, a committed group of young writers came to workshops every Thursday afternoon – first at Story Factory in Parramatta; then, when the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic hit, over Discord. Through these and many other disruptions, the young people in this program continued to write and support each other. This chapbook was written as part of that project.
This project was supported by the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund.
