I’m Marvin Sordell I’m a football player, but I’m also a poet. And poetry has allowed me to communicate in a way I never thought was possible. I was struggling with depression I didn’t know… why I was feeling how I felt and it was only through writing that I was able to just pour my emotions out. Everything that was in my head was able to flow onto paper and that was the way I… became free. Being… true to who we are as flawed as we all are is everything. And… the more we can speak our truth, the more we can connect with each other. For National Poetry Day I’m looking forward to seeing you become a poet. So speak your truth and share it online.
