Truthfully, I am afraid of where my life will go since I’m transitioning from mental health to academia. Full disclosure: taking a new direction in my life is exhausting. I have truly been burnt out for the past semester and I could have done a lot better had my energy levels been higher. I’m having back pain. I’m losing my redness. I’m getting old.
That said, I’ve remained young in spirit through my poetry. It’s kept me going throughout the worst places in my life. I appreciate all who have visited this page.
