An arrow can be shot only by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great. So just take a deep breath and keep aiming.

“Voicebox” by Angela Cao is a brilliant poem that left me speechless, choked on the words I wanted to utter about the concept. The idea of one's voice, the words one may say, being compared to a cigarette is very relatable for me. I am one who often regrets the words I spill.

I especially love the line “and it tastes like burnt regret.” This is powerful for me because of the dark imagery and the way it left me with a lingering taste of smoke in my mouth.
