The Colorful, Poetry Collection, Explained!

Finally! I know what you may be thinking, The last book in the poetry collection being released. If you are wondering what the first two collections are about you can read the first one here, The Darkness but be warned that there is a trigger warning as some of the subjects in the collection are hard to read or think about for many people. The Light, the second collection released is more about overcoming obstacles and challenges in life, with some trigger warnings in there this is more of an uplifting spirit.

And this! The Colorful is the final installment in the trilogy of poetry collections that I have released. This is probably the most fun one to write. I was able to be silly and fun and sometimes not even making any sense at all! This is the collection that I am sure many many people will enjoy and hopefully they enjoy it as much as I had fun writing it. These are poems that I know I thought back to my childhood as well as the future raising kids of my own now too. I can only assume that people too can relate to the poems or have similar stories that they can remember when they were younger too.

Some of the chapters in this collection touch base on some of life’s most meaningful subjects. From the weather, pets, or children. Maybe even places to be or things to do. They talk about all of the joys one may find. Music is a chapter where I talk about popular songs or songs that bring up memories for various reasons. I know there are some that remind me of my childhood when my dad was working out side on the cars and had the radio going on the oldies which are now the super oldies.

I talk about different situations that you may find yourself in when you have children. Since becoming a mom I have learned so much and my kids have taught me so much too. I talk about meltdowns and moments that you can’t help but smile as you read the words along the pages. I know I was smiling writing them!

Then in the weather chapter there is situations about splashing in mud puddles, having a snow day at school or even the sun shining and feeling it on your skin. There is a lot of different things that can be written about in a light hearted way that I am sure most can relate to, that is if you life in a place that has snow! It may be hard to relate to a poem about snow if you don’t know what it looks like! hopefully they are able to show you just what it means for it and you can feel like you were there too.

After writing different things that are the tougher side of life, this book was a great relief from writing about them. I loved every minute or thinking of subjects to talk about in the chapters. I was excited when a new one would pop into my head to the point I would even write the ideas for them down so I never forgot. Having 2 boys it can be challenging to write about a subject in the moment and this was a great way for me to not forget ideas.

The Colorful is a collection that I am hopeful people can read whether on it’s own, or as the final installment of the trilogy. Even though it is part of a series of collections it can still be read by itself to understand what is happening. They can be stand alone or read together to see the progression of the world being a dark and scary place, to moving towards light and healing, to embracing what life has to offer. There may be a few sadder themes happening and when they come up I will also add a trigger warning just in case people need them. However I do feel fairly confident that these will go well in terms of people interpreting how they will be.

Subjects that I also write about are winning, and no not just about the lottery too, laughter and things that can make people laugh, peace and the world or even just peace of mind when you realize a life changing moment. These were a nice way to finish how I felt and to see others too who feel this way. Some of the situations were a bit tricky to think about only because I did not want to write about the same things every time. The chapters are there to give the topics, but the situations are hopefully different enough that you enjoy them too.

There are moments in children where I talk about having my c-section and how it mentally was challenging for me to have a newborn and my oldest however in the end I can’t picture it any other way. I am so thankful to have these experiences to be able to write about too. I know some other people may have a tough time relating to life in this way. Some people have grown up much differently than I have. I am sharing a piece of my life with you and I sincerely hope that in some way you too can relate to these poems about how life is filled with many, many situations that can make our world colorful. There is not always a black and white path. There is lots of shades and colors that are around and able to be seen if only we look a little bit harder to appreciate them!

The Darkness, Poetry Collection, Explained!

If you have been living under a rock, you may not be aware but I have been writing, editing and releasing a collection of poetry. In fact I am releasing three this year! This is explaining the first (And essentially “darkest” one) and what you may need to be aware of.

Before I begin to jump into some subjects of this book here is your trigger warning. The subjects that are in this book and what I am about to talk about are hard for most to deal with. A lot of us have dealt with them and lived them and a lot of us just find they are hard to form opinions because there is a stigma around them. There is various reasons for me to have written this particular collection however the subjects here are tough for most to read or accept too.

You will NEVER be pressured to contribute to towards put any type of money towards the blog however if the thought has crossed your mind, here is a great way to help a stay at home mom provide some financial relief for her family.

One of the reasons why I wrote this collection was for myself. That is because apparently I had a lot of feelings that I needed to express. One of the subjects that has a dominant theme in the categories would be that I write about domestic violence. If you aren’t familiar with it, I was in an abusive relationship from the time that I was 18 to just after I turned 20 years old. It sucked. It was hard. I never really talked about it. And this was a way for me to release and spread how I felt. I know that people too who maybe felt like I could were unable to understand why this happened to them, They may have felt like they deserved it like I did, or they make have been in similar situations too. I feel like by writing a lot of these things I have let myself understand that these things did happen and they were real.

Another subject that I talk about is drug abuse. A lot of us know what it may be like to have family members who have been addicted to various means or maybe themselves. When I was in high school towards my final years I loved to take ecstasy. Was it a problem? Sure. Did no one know about it? Not really. I just hid things from people and made it seem fine. Doing it at parties or with friends or even working at Burger King with a few people working or the manager too. This is something that I talk about too in this particular blog in detail.

These poems also touch on subjects from a self harm, bullying, death and losing family members, illnesses like cancer and depression. I am not going to sit here and say I have a diagnosed mental health issue. I never sought help and I dont feel like I needed to. Maybe one day but for the time being I just never did. I feel like when I write it was something similar to throwing something away. I felt like I was able to write how I felt and that I was giving a weight that has been weighing me down.

I wanted to write this selfishly for myself however I have a feeling that maybe, just maybe, others will also feel like they too feel that they too will be to understand though that there is more people out there who also feel the way that they were feeling. So often when we are in situations we all bottle things up, and we blame ourselves. We feel like we are alone. Due to the stigma of these subjects people either wont take us seriously etc. Not this time. I am writing this as a way of exposing and hopefully breaking barriers that these situations are more known than we may want to lead on to be.

I know that some people are not going to be interested in this. That is totally okay too! I know that this book is not for everyone either. I have put a lot of disclaimers in and trigger warnings including some sub-subjects in the table of contents. That way you can choose if you want to read particular chapters or skip through them. Kind of think about the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul books and how they ranged in many subjects and what not. Now a days people like to have the trigger warnings so that they can prep themselves or skip readings. That is what I am doing here. I want people to be fully aware that what they are reading may effect them mentally and be challenging for them to continue.

I also want to be blunt and harsh when I wrote them too. I didn’t want to write about situations where they seemed to sugar coats them. Domestic abuse, death, feeling lonely are all situations where they should not be sugar coated. They are supposed to be hard to deal with. I didn’t want to make a domestic violence filled relationship seem to be “That bad” because it was. It was bad. It was something that took me a very long time to get over and a very long time to come to terms with it.

I hope that when this book goes out into the online world that many too can find some sort of peace in reading it. You are not alone. Your feelings are valid and that you are fully able to feel whatever way you are feeling. I also want to show that through The Darkness comes light. There is a way to get past anything life throws at you and if writing poems like myself are a way to cope so be it, if you need to seek professional opinions and treatment, that is also alright too! There are many ways with dealing with life’s darkest and hardest subjects. This is my way of dealing with them.
