About the Book

This collection of deeply introspective poems reflects Vera’s inner voice in response to her unrecognized and unfelt personal traumas and shocks. She writes about loss, pain, joy, love, fear, memories, and death. The poems, written over a four-year period, emerged from moments of silence. They give voice to that which otherwise might remain lost or hidden. They reflect her previously unexpressed emotions underlying life’s traumatic experiences. The voices within compelled her to bring them forth on her healing journey.
