My poetry is inspired by my own experiences with anxiety. It was a difficult and impactful experience, one that still fills my mind at unexpected moments. By putting it on paper I hoped to relieve some of the tension around the memories and free myself of any lingering trauma. All the better if my honest voice can get through to others who may be experiencing the same thing or who wish to understand what teens like me go through and listen to us then all the better.
