These poems are an exploration of the human condition through the lens of a mental health therapist. They are about reclaiming and celebrating oneself and one's story in a time of turmoil. The collection walks the reader through the quest to meet ourselves and uncover resilience. Along the way we grapple with accepting the paradoxes of being human and meet allies that accompany us on the journey.
