Look and Listen #30: Aniyah Smith, Healing

Healing is a poem by Aniyah Smith, a New York based poet from Washington, DC. She was the 2018 DC Youth Poet Laureate, 2018 DC Youth Slam Grand Slam Team Champion, a member of the 2018 Louder Than a Bomb-DMV winning team, and the 2017 National Book Festival Slam Champion. She studies theatre at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy.

Again, we see how art, this time poetry, can revive a person, give them a different perspective and give life. If you ever get stuck, and I hope you never do, try Aniyah’s advice.
