If you're a fan of Healing Is a Gift by Alexandra Vasiliu or The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur, then this poem collection is for you C. S. Phoenix's striking vulnerability and heartfelt compassion will nestle into your soul and plant the seeds of self-love you need to make peace with your past, embrace your present strength, and empower your unlimited future.
Integrity is here to remind you, you are a fighter, a warrior, and a survivor. You have made it this far. Keep going.
When I was young, I felt completely alone. I thought that no one could understand how I felt, as no one else had been through the same horrors as me. I was alone in my pain, and the solitude only made it hurt more.
Luckily for me - and unfortunately for many others - I was wrong. As I grew, I realized that my experiences were not as rare as I once thought. Many people shared similar experiences, and many shared my pain. It was when I realized that I was not alone that I finally found a way to begin to heal.
As I healed, a new pain grew. It was the painful realization that too many people have yet to discover that they are not alone. Now, I will share my stories. Carbon Copy is a collection of poems written for those who feel like they are the only ones, the people who feel like no one could possibly understand.
There is life on the other side of your pain, and it is beautiful.
