This is testimonial poetry at its best. The author tells the story of her mental health struggles, cries for help, and transition from depression to destiny. She reveals her battle with stigma, social discrimination, and relationship issues due to her condition. Yet, it is not her story alone but ours as well. Each utterance of every poem is a deep cry of a mother, father, sister, brother, child, friend—you.
This poetic brew is therapeutic and educational. While revealing the bitter truth, the author uses her personal experiences and education to give hope, insight, and inspiration. Capably using language and imagery, she expresses the raw emotions and heart cries of the sufferer—saying what is often left unsaid and bringing awareness to the unenlightened.
