Williams’ existence as she navigated through difficult times. Originally intended as a means of releasing her thoughts without soliciting unwanted concerns or advice from others, Williams soon found that her poems not only helped her cope with hardship—they gave her strength. It is her hope that her words will help others overcome their pain and struggles as well.
