    Beautiful Journey This book was incredible. The author reminded me a lot of myself growing up. Though our journeys are different, we both grew up with an absent parent and one with an addiction & were raised by our aunts/uncles and ourselves. Her book takes you through heartbreakingly beautiful journey of abuse, addiction, suicide, grief, & the process of learning to heal. “And no, I won’t apologize for hurting the feelings of people who didn’t ever care about hurting mine”

    I thought that was a fine collection. I really think that are some good poems in here for people who have gone through childhood trauma, especially when you have so many people doubting that you were even abused.

    This book of poems is filled with pain, insight, darkness, but transcends itself to light and hope and freedom. With such simplicity, the writer gifts the reader with wisdom and truth. Well done.

    A beautiful set of poems revealing the authors home life struggles, growing up in an alcoholic home, and the abuse she and her siblings endured. Lee is very brave for putting her story into words. Even if you cannot relate personally to the poems they are powerful and evoke such emotion with her words. Each poem tells a story and leaves you wanting to reach out a hand. Her story is not one that should be ignored, she is incredibly strong for having gone through such a trauma and writing it out t A beautiful set of poems revealing the authors home life struggles, growing up in an alcoholic home, and the abuse she and her siblings endured.
