A self illustrated debut poetry collection that questions societal norms and asks the age old question “who am I and more importantly who I’d like to become?” all while meeting at the intersection of race, class, gender and ultimately healing. This work describes the human experience from a unique perspective in that it reassures the reader it’s never too late to recreate yourself and is beautifully coupled with bold and vibrant illustrations that will leave the reader enamored.

“The Depth of Still Water”

So many times I wanted to stop

But the gift wouldn’t let me

Her only response

If you stop now Who will fulfill our destiny?
