I’ve been writing poetry since high school. It was always a great outlet for me and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. A fun fact: I’ve never had s’mores.

About the poem

Sometimes we forget how far we’ve come and need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. I think it’s necessary to pat ourselves on the back sometimes, even for the little things.

We Made It

By Tasakal

We Made It

If only I could
go back in time to
the little girl
sitting in the dark
near her window
praying
for it all to stop,
look her in the eyes
and say

We made it.
