We invite you to participate in chyp’s Poem-a-Day challenge! While we are all at home during this COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage you to try writing a poem each day about your experience. It can include mundane activities like cleaning or imaginative daydreams as you stare out the window… anything that you want to write about!

Check back here to see how others are processing this experience and creating art — starting with a Poem-a-Day!

Note: You can submit your poem in the “comments” section of this post. Once it is approved by our admin team, it will be up for everyone to enjoy!

Matt writes and plays songs for his creative healing! He was able to use his music as an outlet during (and as a way out of) the dark hole of chronic pain at a young age. He performed his two original songs “Civil War” and “Mending Sound” for a chyp fundraiser in Bakersfield. Thank you for sharing your story and talent with us, Matt!
