Shareefa Energy releases visual poem ‘Emotional Rollercoaster’

Sha­reefa Ener­gy, spo­ken word poet and activist, has released a new visu­al poem about self-love, titled ‘Emo­tion­al Rollercoaster’.

Sha­reefa, who has cho­sen to release her lat­est poem dur­ing Men­tal Health Aware­ness Week, explained that this poem was “writ­ten dur­ing a tur­bu­lent rela­tion­ship that affect­ed my peace of mind”.

“Look­ing into the eyes of humans / How many have felt what I feel? / How many have tried to teach lessons of self-love and self-worth to only go home unable to recog­nise who looks back at one’s self in the bath­room mir­ror?” Sha­reefa ponders.

You can watch the full visu­al poem below.
