Ariana Brown - “Volver, Volver” (CUPSI 2014)
"I am always amazed that the ability to forget history is a choice for some people."
Awarded best poet at cupsi 2014.
Trying to make a life not centered around trauma and hate is so HARD.
Every day I try to tell myself that I’m okay, that I’m strong, and that I am the one in control. When I know I’m going to be alone or when I don’t have the concentration/energy, my mind fills the lull in with the shadows.
Despite that, I’ve been getting better. Taking control of my life has made me better.
