I consider 2017, the year I finally took one step forward.
On the 25th December 2017, my sister gave me a journal and John Green's Turtles All The Way Down for Christmas. Part of me was happy that l had a new journal but another part of me had no idea what to write in the journal. I thought about writing a story, but l didn't feel like writing a story.
Not because I didn't have some brilliant story line. it's just l didn't feel like expressing my thoughts, emotions through fictional characters. So, what did l decide to write in my brand-new journal you ask? l decided to write about my emotions and thoughts in the form of poems.
Personally, I decided to do it this way because l still felt the need to be creative in some form of fashion. To be honest, l am not going to lie it's being a good creative outlet. Sharing this with the world I realised I wasn't alone.
