Heart-Shaped Growth: Poetic Evolution from Teen to Adult
As a teen struggling to get through periods of hormone flux and hyper-sensitivity, I turned to poetry as a way to process my feelings and grow stronger. In the pages of Heart-Shaped Growth, these feelings are shared as I evolve from being an impressionable teen to planting my feet firmly in early adulthood. It becomes clear that life is far from easy, love often hurts, and people will let you down. Join me as I process my feelings through poetry and grow stronger slowly but surely, transitioning from girl to woman, naive to aware, and foolishly optimistic to hardened and real.
