The mind can be a frightening or comforting place. Some people may be scared of what they may find there; others may go there in search of safety or to hide their secrets from themselves when the impact of life's experiences or mental illness become too unbearable, overwhelming or confusing.
Underneath the sorrow and helplessness of depression, there is always hope, for there is always a new day. For some, even joy can take them to extremes of mood and emotion, to a place where everything seems to move too fast and they lose sight of who and where they are.
This collection of poems explores these extremes of emotions. While these poems express the anguish of emotional pain and fear, this is necessary in order to truly experience the joy of being alive. There is always hope that life can be lived with a sense of peace and understanding and being.
