Life comes with issues and situations that can get us overwhelmed. At times, we tend to get lost in the process and forget that we are worthy and deserve so much better. But I find poetry to be therapeutic in many ways.

Poems communicate different ideas, thoughts, and feelings, helping me somehow get in touch with their soul and inner spirit. Seeing what their minds and hearts weigh helps me open up to feelings I may have suppressed, shining new light on me.

These poems about finding yourself will help you come back to where you belong.
