About the Book

With a talent for storytelling and metaphors flowing from the deepest level of her mind, Sabrina’s poems are powerful at awakening change within the reader. It is said that poetry forms a bridge from the unconscious to the conscious part of the mind, allowing emotions and thoughts to emerge for healing and deep self-reflection. The poems within this book are designed to invite communication and reconnection, first and foremost with yourself but also with others. Each piece of writing is designed for self-reflection and can be used as a tool for gaining insight into what is most important to you at this point in time, right in this moment. As you read each poem, allow your innermost voice to emerge and simply listen so that you may hear what it is telling you about where you are right now.
