I wish you could see what I see

Matthew shares a poem about hope for a brighter future. 

- Matthew Bucktrout

This poem is inspired by the memories of people uncertain of where they are going or how they are going to make it. For everyone who is struggling now and who will struggle in the future, let these words guide you for these words are a sign of hope that we are not alone, and brighter times are on the horizon. To you I say, I wish you could see what I see...

Hi I’m Matt, a third year undergraduate studying physics at Durham. Like many other students, I've experienced the difficult mental side effects of the pandemic taking normal life away. I wanted to put some words on a page to show that we're not alone, however hard it may seem, and that there is a brighter, new world coming. For those who know me and those who don't, I will always be around to talk about anything or just to listen. Please don't hesitate to ask because a conversation really can save a life. When those dark thoughts take hold all we really want is someone to take our hand and show us the light and I hope with my words I can achieve this.
