In this debut collection of poetry, sparse text resonates and creates an impactful presence as the poet unpacks past trauma. Divided into four parts, this essential collection delves into the magic of resilience in finding one’s way through past pains. The poet’s words harness both shadow and light, the contrast creating new directions and perspectives.
