Persevere with Poetry

What does it mean to persevere through difficult times? When we’re surrounded by challenges, it’s important to check in to our emotions and find a way to redirect them. Using swimming as a metaphor, explore what it means to persevere. What do your “strokes” look like when life is challenging? What does perseverance look like to you? How do you carry on and endure during hard times while maintaining strength and purpose.

Sentence starters are a great way to inspire writing. View the video prompt below, stopping between them to explore writing in your own unique style, tone, and voice. Each video section will give you another step to create your own self-affirming poem.
