Trauma's Death is a poetically documented journey through some traumatic and tragic events of my life. The journey began with an argument that demanded I take a good long look at myself…
The longer I looked, the more trauma I found. While the events aren't pretty, I used a forced perspective to overcome and end with Sunshine and Rainbows. You see, I prefer a wake to a funeral, especially when mourning. Added bonus: the forced positivity enabled me to see who I am beyond the trauma.
Read these poems to know you are not alone, no matter how deep and dark it is where you are. There is light somewhere, you just have to find it. Let my Trauma's Death be your guide towards your own Sunshine and Rainbows.
