This Might Help is a project by YYC Poet Laureate Natalie Meisner. Here you will find a listenable repository of poems that might ease what ails you written by and for Calgarians and the world.
No one expects poetry to solve the real world problems facing us right now. It can never substitute for food or shelter. We cannot eat a poem, nor will it set a broken bone. Poetry can, however, stitch up a broken heart, help us see the world through one another’s eyes and find beauty in odd places.
Reading, writing and listening to poetry can help us find hope when we need it most.
