About the Book

This is a compilation of passionately written poetry that emotionally and vulnerably challenges love, life, mental health, and problems plaguing relationships in the technological era such as unfaithfulness, broken hearts, unrequited love, trauma and open wounds so intimately through clear communication that anyone can find a piece of themselves within its pages. The author hoped to skip pass the color of the roses and get to the raw points as authentically as she could in a millennial-like tone hoping to foster open discussions on topics that are usually glossed over.

About the Author

About the author:

Born on April 21st Fedana is a Haitian- Canadian poet residing in Toronto, Ontario. She began writing as a means of self-expression, drawing inspiration from the late great poet Maya Angelou, along with Langston Hughes, Nikki Giovanni, James Baldwin, Ntozake Shange and more powerful African American literary figures. Fedana has a way of getting people to tap into different spaces of themselves through relatability. She puts a lot of herself in her writing as well as a lot of the encounters that she’s had the opportunity to make. Her hobbies include performing spoken word poetry, connecting with nature, singing offkey at the top of her lungs, and reading as many books as she can cram into a year.
