These poems were solely meant for my cathartic release but I am now thankful that in sharing, they have resonated with so many of you. If that simple act of sharing leads to a reader shedding the cloak of silence or unwitting indifference and having an opinion which leads to life changing action then, I have not enough words to express my deepest gratitude. This time is already proving to be different. We are in a race where we can now see the finish line.
I am hoping that together we can make this an uprising.
