These poems aim to explore the mental struggles that come with navigating life, and what it’s like to deal with unexpected obstacles along the way. The poems delve into the depths of human resilience and the ability to overcome hardships.

I’m hoping that these poems can provide comfort and inspiration to those who are currently facing adversity, mainly to remind them that they are never alone, no matter what. Additionally, these poems could remind readers to always treat people with kindness, because you never know what someone is going through.


My name is Emily Johnston, and I am 19 years old. I am pursuing my Bachelor's of Science in Aerospace Engineering at Embry-Riddle. While math and science are my stronger subjects, I also love writing as it gives me a way to express my emotions in a creative way.
