About Me

Miracle D. Burns

When dealing with grief, it can be challenging to find the right words to express the depth of emotions one is experiencing. Poetry has a unique way of capturing the essence of our feelings and providing solace in times of sorrow. James Baldwin once said, "You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive."

Finding Connection Through Words

These words resonate deeply when navigating the turbulent waters of grief. Poetry has the power to connect us with others who have experienced similar pain and loss. Toni Morrison beautifully expressed this sentiment when she said, "We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives."

The Healing Power of Creativity

Writing poetry during times of grief can be a cathartic and healing process. It allows for the expression of complex emotions in a creative and meaningful way. Through the act of writing, one can find a sense of release and clarity amidst the chaos of loss.

As the poet Rumi once said, "The wound is the place where the Light enters you." In the midst of grief, poetry can be the light that guides us through the darkness, offering a glimmer of hope and understanding.

A Personal Journey

On a personal note, I have found solace in writing poetry as a means of processing grief. Through the act of putting pen to paper, emotions are transformed into art, allowing for a deeper exploration of the self and the healing of the soul.

The importance of writing poetry during times of grief cannot be understated. It is a powerful tool for self-expression, connection, and healing. As James Baldwin and Toni Morrison have eloquently expressed, writing has the ability to transcend pain and connect us with the shared human experience of loss.
