Awakening was created to encourage the reader to be vulnerable, raw, real, unafraid to share a piece of their soul with the world. This is how a shy young girl uses her voice, when many assumed she just didnt have much to say. It captures a young poets journey and reflections, as she began to live uncontrolled by fear. The poems are the lessons she has learned through her adolescence. May her words resonate, inspire, and draw out the free spirit in you.
