Bleeding Words is a great read for anyone who has been stricken by pain or grief in life. I came across this book at a time when I was going through one of my lowest moments in life. The author, Kenisha Bailey, takes the reader on a unique healing journey using a series a short and sentimental poems.
Those of us who are walking around with fresh wounds dealt by life may find themselves triggered in the first part of the book. The author’s first set of poems centralize around a theme of anguish. A personal favorite for myself is the poem entitled “Drowning”, where the author uses metaphoric imagery to display the duality of fight or freeze responses. The author then takes the reader into a stage of homeostasis where the mind, body, and soul begin to heal from the gaping wounds of the heart.
After the wounds… we are left with our beautiful scars; the book ends with a series of poems to display the triumph of victory. No matter where you stand on your journey to healing you will find a piece that will inspire. Kenisha Bailey has a powerful message that can be heard through the words on the pages of her book. Definitely, a great read!!!
