Fire and Desire

Author: Elizabeth Melendez


Item Summary

No. of item(s):
Total amount:

This book of poems was written to inspire myself and those around me to stay true to one’s self. Growing up, I was always told that I was “too much,” too filled with fire, “too emotional.” Throughout my years, I’ve learned to find beauty behind vulnerability and embrace my fire. My feistiness makes me who I am. I am outspoken, yet calm. I am filled with a spark that cannot die. I am not meant to be heard, and I am meant to be seen. With my fire comes desire.

My name is Elizabeth. I am a brain tumor survivor and have found comfort in expressing my emotions through poetry. I am a mother of five beautiful daughters, who inspire me to illustrate my thoughts every day. My journey has motivated me to remain vibrantly vocal. I hope to inspire my readers to find motivation and comfort in vulnerability.
