Do you ever feel like you are at war with yourself or that you are the one stopping yourself from doing what you were put on this earth to do?
The Journey of a Bedroom Poet is a book of poems that will encourage you to face these demons. The book explores matters of the heart and soul, as well as the internal obstacles we face, from low self-esteem, anxiety and negative emotions to shame, addiction and disordered thoughts and habits that ultimately do not serve us. The battles bedroom poet faces will guide you to see your own more clearly.
The bedroom is a metaphor for one's comfort zone and can be applied to absolutely anyone. What would you do without fear and filter? And what would you accomplish if you weren't at war with yourself? Sometimes, the biggest battles we fight take place in our minds. We're constantly told by everyday media that the answer to our questions lie outside ourselves. no, no, no! The answer lies within.
The bedroom poet would kindly like to invite you to join her on this journey. Together, we can rise above the mind while seeing the beauty in the madness, or the poetry in the prose ;)
