Hours is a 10 piece poem that has 7 complete pieces and 3 interludes. Written in July, August & October 2016, it deals with the search of identity as a human being and the journey that guides one to self-awareness as an individual through periods of grief, depression, rejection, loss and silence. The whole poem is a melancholic lyric, that is a cry that echoes through even after the healing has taken place at long last, if only to serve as a reminder that the sensitive and scarred places that are logged beneath our skin are beautiful in their own way and very essential.
It was a complete metamorphosis for me as a writer to bring this to life.
