I Want

Ahead of White Ribbon Day 2023, we held ‘Writing into Recovery’ poetry workshops as part of our Wellbeing Service with women. The classes focused on writing poetry as a path towards ownership, discovery and transformation led by poet Penny Hughes, using this year’s White Ribbon Day theme, #ChangeTheStory. The poems featured in a trail around Stapleford to mark White Ribbon Day.

This poem was written by participant, Maria.

I Want

So, I begin with words that free
That echo all my past
That open up my new life
A rebirth that will last

There’s a promise ahead and
Wonder each day
There’s freedom to think
And playfully say

I’m me, I’m me that’s
Who I am
I’m happy to be this
Person I’ve become
Ever changing like the leaves on a tree
