(w)holehearted: By Sara Bawany

I grew up in an abusive home and struggled with depression, anxiety, and insomnia. Those sleepless nights and worries somehow helped me turn to reading, writing and poetry as a way to cope. I always knew I wanted to be an author but I wasn’t sure how I would achieve it. Several years later, I published my first poetry book “(w)holehearted: a collection of poetry and prose.” Additionally, that scared little girl grew up to be a social worker who counseled people through mental health illnesses, advocated for victims of domestic violence, and more recently, started working at an organization to investigate abusive religious and community leaders. I don’t always feel like I have life figured out and sometimes I am overwhelmed by how much further I have to go, but I know that if the younger version of me was so resilient, the older version of me must be too. So here’s to turning our pain into poetry. Here’s to turning our pain into power.
