The series of works and experiences described in the poems of this collection serve to articulate the continuous struggle that occurs within oneself. The author explores the complexity of sins and mistakes, the regret and guilt that follows, and the painstaking journey to seeking redemption and forgiveness, both from God and from oneself. Human nature is inherently good, however, when the soul is lulled by devilish whispers, it is inexplicably easy to fall into sin. Whether the following experiences are fictitious or not, they delve into the concept of self-awareness and place great importance in knowing that learning from the past is the best way to embrace it and move forward. Though the past may continue to haunt our minds in the darkest of nights, it is essential to remember that we are more than our mistakes. Failures in life, are always a journey—never a destination.

About the Author:

"I present to you, dear reader, your author. She reins from the city of Kolkata in the eastern outskirts of India, but grew up in suburbia Houston, Texas. But do not be mistaken, for Huda Bint Adnan is no tourist in the world of emotion. Her poetry bleeds the words of a soul who has travelled far across the globe, experienced much pain and suffering, and dared greatly to become something of herself. With each struggle life has thrown at her, she has endured. With each passing moment, she is a living embodiment that one can not only tame their demons, but can stand upon their shoulders and call out, “I am greater.” Each poem is cathartic in nature, yet simple in complexity. Each poem screams of emotion, yet remains subtle in its presentation. Huda has mastered the fine art of conveying her emotions in a manner succinct and in a presentation minimal. With each line read, we feel as if she’s lived amongst us. With each line read, we hear our hearts whisper, “I have felt so, too.” On reaching the end, we lean back as our souls let out a soft, barely audible gasp, “Truer words were never spoken.” I've only just acquainted myself with Huda Adnan (and barely, at that). But the truth is, her poetry speaks to me as if I've known her my whole life. As if she’s known me her whole life. Perhaps you’ll find an old friend within these pages. Perhaps you’ll find yourself; the words you’ve always wanted to voice, but were unable to form between your lips. Perhaps you’ll find yourself falling in love with her writing, just as I did. But perhaps, most importantly, you may find your soul released from its shackles, set free by Huda’s vindicating and alleviating words, written in the language only heartbreak can understand, and lived by one who has come to understand them all." Written by: Mohammad Mitha
