This book, written in response to my hardships, childhood, lifetime of trauma, triumphs, and disappointments. Enclosed, there is intentional use of gender-neutral pronouns (i.e., they/them), not grammatical errors. With that said, there is proud queer representation in this book. These selected poems encase pieces of advice to my past and future selves. We will all endure sex, love, sadness, and peace. These poems house my experiences and life lessons. I yearn for folks to never endure most of what this book showcases. And for those who have, or will, I hope it provides comfort and a sense of peace.
