I am a Canadian student graduating Grade 12 and creating a capstone project. I have chosen to create a podcast to showcase my learning journey, my love for poems and their power. This episode talks about and deals with the topic of substance abuse and how someone with a substance abuse problem could be feeling. This episode uses metaphors such as a hole as the addiction, and a shovel as a rehabilitation centre.
