I Love Writing Poetry

Armisa Herbert

I love writing and can’t see myself doing anything else. The other day, I met a woman on the bus who went through a divorce. Her husband wanted to take the kids, but she fought hard to keep them. She finished college and graduated. Now she’s a nurse. The title of the poem I wrote for her is “Resilience.”
