Description of the Book:


Societal messaging had trapped me in negative mental cycles. When I realized that my physical body could expire unexpectedly because my father passed away, I had a reckoning that my inaction towards having a better life could be less desirable than stepping into unfamiliar territories. This book is just another way to manifest what I want now by imaginatively remixing cultural influences. A collection of poetry, perhaps best described as speculative.
