Hi Christina,

If my writing spoke to you, then you are more than welcome to respond! :)

This poem is about my relationship with myself, especially with the pain I have been carrying for as long as I can remember.

For this piece, I have tried to externalize my pain as much as possible and tried to converse with it.

It shares my many experiences with it, the ups and downs, the trial and error, the love-hate relationship we share, as my pain also helps me create art and is a massive part of who I am.

I end with a plea that I wish to get better at accepting it, handling and managing it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and respond.
