    • Dear Yaqui,
      I couldn’t imagine how you could have felt but as little as you were when your father died I know it was probably super tough to go through growing up. You are really brave sharing about this. I really appreciated the explanations you put on how you felt so people would understand.

    • Hey Yaqui,

      I really enjoyed reading you comic. I admire how bold you are to share such a hard time in your life. I couldn’t imagine what that felt like. Panel number three was extremely powerful to be because the stairs were leading up to a pitch black room. I saw that as symbolism for what you could have been feeling, like alone or just empty on the inside after a really hard time.This comic is really powerful, short and straight to the story.

      Thank you for sharing this.

      Love,
      Stephanie B

    • Dear Yaqui,
      This is a very deep story and I thank you for sharing it I think it was brave of you for sharing it. The graphic weight of the comic really stood out to me because of the dark coloring in the background that you added. I think this piece would really connect with a lot of young people that have lost someone that they love.

    The world is already cold

    Family is supposed to give you that warmth

    That warmth you need to survive the cold

    • My dear Yaqui,
      when you write the lines “The world is already cold, Family is supposed to give you that warmth, That warmth you need to survive the cold”, I had the chills, because I totally agree with these words. Love is such a powerful emotion, we have no Idea how strong of a hold it has over us. If you really need it, I and our friends can be the family that warms you. It may not be the one you truly strive for now, but it is indeed there.

    • I have never heard family love described like this but at the same time, it makes so much sense. I envision myself by a warm fireplace but I don’t feel at home until I have my family right next to me. It must be so awful that you had nothing to protect you from the cold! Just know that somewhere out there someone wants to be present and provide this lovely warmth.

    Funny how people talk about change

    But go out accepting the oppression that surrounds them

    Change isn’t a belief

    Change is a actual thing

    A thing that can happen

    A thing many of us dream of

    But

    Change Change Change

    Funny how people talk about change But go out accepting the oppression that surrounds them Change isn't a belief Change is a actual thing A thing that can happen A thing many of us dream of But change doesn't happen overnight To reach change we can't...

    • Yaqui,
      This is a really powerful poem! With everything going on in our world today it is really important to acknowledge change and how it should be a part of our lives. I love that you say that the youth are like the seeds that are planted because I too believe that the youth of our world are going to be the change. We have identified problems and we will be the ones to create change because as you wrote it is “rooted within us”. I loved your poem keep writing!

    • Yaqui,

      This is a great poem! I love how you talked about how people can make a difference in the world, but they have to put their mind to it. You can’t just believe in change, you have to become the change if you want to make a difference. I liked this a lot! Keep writing more!

    • These lines really speak to me — “Change isn’t a belief / Change is a(n) actual thing”. For things to changes, you’ve got to stop doing things the same way. Thank you for sharing!!!

    I feel like being alone

    But in reality I just need someone to never let me go

    Expressing my feelings through writing

    Was just another way to cope with the pain

    I was numb

    Numb to the world

    Numb

    There's More To Life Than Just Pain

    • Yaqui,

      This post is so incredibly brave. It takes true courageous to write about your hardships in this way. Your writing is chilling, in the best way. I could tell that every word meant something to you, they made the reality so real that goosebumps rose on my skin. I am so thrilled that you have managed to stay strong and see the other side. I truly hope you stay safe and feeling better. Here is a video that you may have seen already, and although it isn’t directly related to your situation, I think you may find comfort in it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltun92DfnPY

    • Yaqui, Powerful poem! There seems to be alot going through your mind and Im so glad you decided to share with the web. Its important to import your emotions into any artistic form, the way you delivered it was fabulous! I hope your doing well and thanks for sharing!

    • Dear Yaqui,

      This post is so powerful!! You had the courage to share with us the things that you feel and that is really hard because not many people are so strong to talk about this topics since for to many people this kind of topics are a “bad” thing but in reality is not. Thank you for sharing this with us.

      With Love

      Andrea Fonseca
