Poetry with a purpose

For all the self-help books, support groups, and therapy that I’ve been a part of, this video did more for me to empathize with survivor guilt than anything else.


And Taylor Mali is incredible.

When I was first turned on to him, I rationed his videos the way my brother rationed his chocolate covered cherries after Christmas… eating them slowly so they last for weeks.

If you need to watch something uplifting after words, I recommend: What do Teachers Make or I’ll Fight you For the Library. I also love Depression Too Is a Type of Fire (not uplifting), Like Lily Like Wilson  and Miracle Workers.
