To celebrate World Poetry Day Basmah Mohamed explores the resilience we’ve all had to find during the pandemic

A blessing is never a curse

But a curse can be a blessing

For life is testing you

More every day

Until you see the strength and resilience

You’ve always had within you

To keep going

To keep turning the page

For you are the poet

And I’m merely writing the poem.
