Lifting Dims: A Poetry Collection

36 pages7 minutes


A book of poetry that is meant to both document and honor the author's childhood and teenage days. A reflection of self-growth, struggle with mental illness and a never-ending quest to find family and love. Lifting Dims is an intention to be heard.

The first part of the book voices the poet's dark emotions toward a cruel father and a prejudiced society, and addresses the mental turmoil that accompanies her strife. The second part, on the other hand, attempts to reveal the false liberties and profound desires found in love.

Poems in Lifting Dims are infused with imagery and melodies designed to make a statement rather than merely exist for a literary purpose. They will lead the way to manifest tenors of anguish, desire, hope and mystery that is life.
