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.

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.
