GUARDIAN ANGEL: POEMS ON TRAUMA, HEALING AND COMING OF AGE
Guardian Angel is a collection of poems written the year following the death of my father figure. They predominantly discuss mental health and healing from childhood trauma.The poems reflect the shedding of shame and secrecy childhood trauma and abuse creates for survivors. Many of these memories I had not shared until my own intensive trauma therapy. This collection of poetry is extremely heavy. It describes abuse I experienced by my biological parents and the foster care system. I have not categorized these poems as traumatic memories are often not organized. They often are shattered into pieces which the survivor then struggles to make sense of.
