Poetry & Art

thank you

thank you

for loving the light

and looking for it

wherever you go

for finding joy

in the little things

like wildflowers

for always looking

for the rainbow

after the storm

and leaning to

dance in the rain

and that even

after you have

walked through the fire

you still choose

your strength

you still choose

to write your story


by Esther Gonzales

I am a New Jersey based poet who aspires to share my story through poetry and prose focused on faith and my journey with depression. I have overcome many obstacles and I believe everyone has a story to tell, even if they haven't found the words yet. I hope my words can inspire others to believe in their purpose and to find strength to climb the next mountain.
