Description of the Book:

Scribbled thoughts and ruminations, all collected, compiled, and treasured for a decade. These verses, most without any rhyme or meter, engage with the incoherent voices of a distressed soul with a promise to calm the mind and whisper in your ear, "Relax". Feelings of hurt, joy, anger, and despair often find solace in words, albeit inadequately. However, expression is must, no matter the ink on the paper gets smudged or spilled. This is a journey to seeking the beauty of clarity in a blur.
