Poems that help you, have helped you get through the dark times - depression or inner crisis - or have helped you cope with what life has thrown at you. We all go there and hopefully we all come back stronger and ready to face the world. Looking forward to hearing what you come up with. Also, if you like you can bring poems on other themes, or you are also welcom to come and listen.
