A note before beginning...

Hello everyone! This is our first post in our monthly spotlight series, which is intended to highlight certain themes important to feminism. This September, the STOP Campaign is focusing on mental health. This blog post was created by Franchesca Isla, a Collective Member, who wanted to demonstrate the motions of her mental health journey.


 

in the breaking

by franchesca isla


the rubble of what was lay before me, and i found myself immersed in the unknown. i was young, and it was a season of my life.

as time did what time does best, i sought solace in the creators before me. i wondered through their galaxies, and dwelt in their sentiments. page by page, the walls that had so swiftly closed in on me began to come apart; and in the breaking, i found dawn.
