Finding Strength in Sadness

Heart sketch

My heart is heavy.
There’s a lump in my throat.

I’m trying to stay steady.
I’m trying to stay afloat.

Why did this happen?
This just isn’t right.

This is hard to imagine
But I need to come to light.

This fight isn’t over.
I won’t let you down.

I’ll regain my composure.
And together we’ll be strong.

About me? I’m never good at these things, but here are the basics. I’m a journalism and film graduate from the University of Texas at Austin. I'm a dedicated digital content nerd with over eight years of experience in digital content management, content writing, copy editing, and project management. Currently, I'm a staff writer for The American Genius, and I manage my personal blog that advocates for epilepsy awareness. I LOVE to bake! I like to challenge myself to learn new decorating and baking techniques. And although I’d love to say I’ve mastered everything and have never burnt a dessert, it simply isn’t true.
