During that time, the author relived both the personal and professional abuses of power she had faced. She forced herself to process the frustrations, sense of betrayal, and feelings of helplessness to understand both the life-long impact and the lessons they offered before she could move past them. Poems such as I'm Rising, The Revolt and Free Your Swagger are just a few example pieces that are sure to leave readers feeling uplifted and ready to adopt a verse or two as their anthem. Whether in search of a connection, shared experiences, healing thoughts, or encouragement, this self-help collection offers ready salves to our daily life experiences. I'm Rising is organized into three chapters entitled Challenges, Evolving, and Rising to aid in finding those particular words meant for us.
