"in its simplest form it's a collection of rambles, prose, and poetry. but it is often what I like to refer to as a little piece of myself-- from heartache, to wholeness, to growth. written over the course of three years and taking inspiration from people and experiences from the age of nineteen, this collection transfers those thoughts and feelings into words. in its rawness and vulnerability nineteen wants to break your heart, and then heal it all over again."
