So… it has been months in the making, but I can finally share the cover of my first poetry collection.
Originally due in May, but life happened and 2019 turned out to be a profoundly difficult and heartbreaking year for me.
But, as the saying goes—better late than never!
‘Stripped’ is a collection of poems that I have shared here and also on my blog.
There are a few new poems in, but most of them will be familiar.
It was quite difficult to decide which poems to include, but my vision was that my first book would be a collection of poems that gave a voice to ‘unbecoming’ all the wrong that you were taught about love, your true worth in relation to your body image and finding your place in this world, to learning to live life with rebellious joy and growing into your own skin—learning to love yourself and finding the ‘beauty in the struggle’.
I am now working on my second collection, which will have a more spiritual thread running through it. I will also include my poems that have more of a nature theme as faith and nature walk side by side for me.
I shall keep you all updated on when the book and eBook go live on Amazon, but for now… I am (finally) able to do a happy dance!
Thank you for being present on my page, for reading my poetry and for your deep courage that you share so bravely, here!
You are all just lovely!
