  • Poem: A little girl used to sleep alone in a dark room
    Never cried when she stumbled and got wounded
    Always laughed at the jokes of her dad
    And always leaned on when feeling defeated
    They called her ‘brave’ and ‘smart’
    The thought of facing her fears without doubt
    But years passed
    That girl became a fully grown woman
    Anxiety and depression were encountered
    So many nights
    Holding the pillow tight
    She knows that she doesn’t need to be alone
    But suddenly she asked herself
    “Can I go back to the days when I was strong?”
