of course i want to be successful
but i don’t crave succes for me
i need to be successful to gain
enough milk and honey
to help those around
I honestly don’t know if I can put into words how much portions of this collection mean to me.
Having gone through my own fair share of abusive relationships and tough times, I found a real sense of healing and happiness in these pages. It can be heavy at parts and certainly triggering — I don’t recommend reading it in public unless you’re comfortable with strangers watching you cry.
In short, it’s a very raw and relatable series of poems. Regardless of your background, personal experiences, or beliefs, there’s something in between its covers that will speak to you — I promise.
for you to see beauty here
does not mean
there is beauty in me
it means there is beauty rooted
so deep within you
you can’t help but
see it everywhere
