When Sheena Hussain was given a shocking and life-changing medical diagnosis, she didn't know what to do. A solicitor, Hussain had kept her life busy with court, cases, and clients. Now, she was forced to slow down and think about what she really wanted from her life. As Hussain was working through these issues, she chronicled her dreams and fears through her poetry. This introspective new poetry collection takes you from the days after her diagnosis to her current position on the road to recovery.
As Hussain recounts in the one short story included in her collection, a health scare can send your whole world crashing down. She writes not only of personal sorrow and loss but the unbearable grief of an entire culture as a city fell.
However, her work doesn't dwell on the negative. Instead, Hussain picks through cherished memories and images. She writes of an inspiring encounter with a man down on his luck and the joys of watching fireworks with friends.
Hussain also writes about her newfound sense of serenity and change of perspective. Her world after her diagnosis is a very different place, but Hussain explores it with an open mind and open heart.
