A really popular way of expressing how you’re feeling is to write it out in the form of a poem or song lyrics. If you feel things are building up in your head too much, you can pour it all out onto paper. Try writing them to music – either something that inspires you, or something instrumental that could be like a blank canvas. Writing creatively like this is a great way to have something positive come from a negative situation.

Don’t forget, poems don’t have to rhyme! It’s more about you expressing yourself and getting how you’re feeling out onto a page.
