Sometimes its best to let the poet speak about what their work is about.
“This poem is about the journey I inadvertently began when I had a mental breakdown at the end of 2016. Since then I have been written off work and in treatment. Luckily, I am fortunate enough to have wonderful professional help and a loving husband and I am healing. I have been led through a journey of self-discovery, reckoning and healing from the inside and out. I also don’t know what I would have done it without nature. My daily walks and weekly hikes have been powerful tool in my recovery. “
