Writing & Poetry Therapy

by Laura J. Shore

Writing and Poetry Therapy

by Langston Hughes

Well, son, I'll tell you:
Life for me ain't been no crystal stair.
It's had tacks in it,
And splinters,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor...


Editor's Note from Tomasz Czepaitis: This poem have moved me in three ways. First, it's mother's words to son. Connection between mother and son is very important, deep on physical and psychical levels, and always unique. It is a kind of inner guidance, which psychologists or son's family can imitate only. That's why bad connection between them hurts so deeply and demands substitutes and conform.

Writing & Poetry Therapy

by Koh Jung-hee & Kim Ji-ha

Under the sky even the bruised reed
shakes freely for one season—
if a tree is deeply rooted
even if the trunk is sawed off, new buds sprout.
The bruised souls, let us shake fully,
let us suffer, shaking fully...
