This entire entry is based on climate change and global warming. Now we are reaching points where we are worsening the amount of carbon in our air by deforestation, we are ruining animals habitats such as the polar bears in the arctic, and weather patterns just keep on getting more and more unpredictable. I portray our earth in all her glory, plants and flowers adorning her hair. Water and our oceans that make up her skin. Although her face is cracked off, we have the part of the earth we still have yet to save and then the part we have lost to our own selfishness.
I wanted to make a piece focusing on the recent events of the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned by the Supreme Court. I wanted to make a piece as a reminder of why this is so dangerous and affects every woman in the US and to also remind people that these laws on women’s bodies are made by people who don’t take into consideration the difficult decisions women sometimes have to make and may have no experience with having a reproductive system.
Personally, I really struggled with my mental health for awhile. But ‘they’ were always there. They were my light. My guide. They helped me out of that hole, that darkness, no matter how much I pushed them away. I didn’t want them to be my light. I didn’t want a ‘they.’ But they never left. They stayed. They returned, and they worked harder than before. My ‘they’ were my light. My guide. My hope.
