Interviewer: Please tell me about poetry? What is your perception about poetry?
Nazima Farooq Lone: By the time kids become teenagers, they’re often experiencing a wide range of emotions and are starting to think long term (like what the rest of their life might look like). Poetry is excellent resource to help them navigate these thoughts and feelings, and the more inspiring they are, the more hope they offer. To be honest there hasn’t been a single book that saved my life, but there have been books that made me seek help I need or made me see something different or most importantly help me embrace myself. I have anxiety and poetry is my escape from it but sometimes they are also my way of accepting and embracing it.
