Why I started writing poetry

Firstly, I would like to introduce myself. Hi, I am Sarvidha Chakrwarti, a 24-year-old girl from India. I am a writer and artist. I started writing in 2020 when the pandemic came, At that time, I was in my final year of college and studying paramedical, but before coming to college, a tragic incident happened in my life. My father died in an accident, and I was not able to accept the fact that he was no more.

I felt as if everything had disappeared from my life. I did not see any happiness or any hope in the world. Because of that, my mental health deteriorated significantly. When I was in my second year of college, I started getting treatment for depression and anxiety disorder. At that time, I did not understand how to express myself or how to tell my feelings to anyone. I could not forget what happened in the past. Then lockdown happened, and I decided to accept my past and try to move forward. 
For this, I gifted myself a diary and started writing down my thoughts, and soon I started liking writing.

I realized that writing down my thoughts was helping me a lot, so it was kind of a lifesaver for me because when you’re struggling with mental health, you realize that no matter how hard you try, opening up to someone is the hardest thing to do. It feels like you want to share, but you still can’t, you want to cry, yet you don’t want to cry. With this feeling of ups and downs, you are unable to do anything, and your life comes to such a point that you cannot see anything except darkness.

When I started writing my thoughts, it felt amazing. It felt as if I were talking to someone, and I could write about the world I want to see and the world I want to live in. Then those thoughts started taking the form of poetry, and I started enjoying writing a lot. Gradually, I wrote thousands of poems, all of which were broken but still close to my heart. However, I never thought that I would post these poems in front of many people because I am not a professional writer, and I do not know the basics of making poetry. But after much thought, I decided that I could be of help to those who were suffering like me. Or those who are disappointed in their lives.

My poems are about what I feel at that moment, what I am thinking at that time, or what I feel looking at nature, and how I want to see this world. All these things inspire me. Now that the world seems very beautiful to me, there is a lot to explore, there is a lot to learn, and there is a lot to know. And I want those who are struggling in life right now to give themselves time to do things that they like, and that’s it.

I hope you guys will enjoy my poetry and writing, and I would like to say that no matter how difficult this time is, the next day will shine as brightly as you wish.

When your emotions overflow like a river
mix them with ink
With that ink, draw a pair of wings and fly towards your dreams.

Thank you for reading to the end. 😊❣️
