It’s been 7 years since I published ‘Unresolved Journey’, my first collection, representing a stage of my existence where I was discovering my voice.
These poems were written during 2016-2018 as a development of my journey.
It’s been a process of revelation to me, departing from my ego to a sense of the world around me. I have been hugely lucky in working with a variety of writers in community workshops which I set up to enable others to enjoy a catharsis of their own. Poetry creates a language which helps us verbalise emotions and metamorphose.
I continue to grow and these poems are a gift. They are authentic journeys in their own episodes and experiences. They enable my ongoing journey of recovery.
This collection was whittled down to 151 poems and further edited. I have placed those that made the final cut in chronological order under each section and as such, the selections form one day of a week. As with life, so some days are fuller. The distance traversed evens out over time – Time and distance being the dimensions of our lives.
The artwork was created by me as part of this journey.
I hope this inspires you in some way to find your creative voice.
