The poignancy of each contribution covers the depths and widths of human experiences often kept secret. The words in this book are real, raging and riveting. Readers will be captivated by the poetry and essays which plunge to the taproot of soul and the psychology of Truths Not Often Told.

Each chapter details the bittersweet of humanity and crosses over stereotypes of gender, racial decree, suicide, justice, depression, grief and wrapping an inclusiveness in the cusp of being seen and heard.
