Arien Reed

Through poetry, I reveal my journey to overcome PTSD and to live happily with an uncommon identity in a resistant and misunderstanding world. I try to own my imperfections and make bouquets out of them as I learn to love myself through radical honesty. Writing is healing, and healing is a journey, not a destination.
