Several Doors Closed, Several Windows Opened: Transformation Through Poetry


Life has and always will be one of the craziest rollercoaster rides that all of us will endure, and in my life for the past couple of years it has certainly been a rollercoaster of emotions and growth. Throughout all the many situations that I have had to go through there have been instances where I found that there are pieces of me that are either happy or sad that they were left in a different chapter of my life, and that's what this collection of poems dives into.


Tin Woman dives into the world of something every single person on the planet goes through, transformation. We learn through situations that were less ideal or beneficial to us that causes us to go through major shifts, whether we were ready or not, and with this collection of poems I found myself going through major transformations in multiple different ways, including mental health, self image issues, and even intimate relationships that I have developed over the past couple of years. Not only does this poetry collection dive into this transformation of mine, but it gives an insight to all those who might be going through similar situations right now.


Have you found yourself realizing that something about you has changed? Maybe something has shifted without you realizing, then all of a sudden you find yourself reacting to a situation in a completely different manner than you have before. You may have found that you have grown in a different way that is completely polar opposite of your loved ones, and while there is nothing wrong with that, it has left you completely confused and unsure of what is occurring. This is what this poetry collection dives into.

Just like the rest of us on the face of this planet, I too have been going through multiple transformations that leave me confused by the end of the day. I've been given doors that seem to be opened for me, but when I reach the said door, it is actually a mirage of what I hope it to be, and instead am given a sign that directs me to look towards the window that shows me what is indeed meant for me, and me alone. While transformations can be daunting, whether it be internally or externally, it is always beneficial in the end, because they shape you into the person you are meant to be.


Tin Woman is available on Amazon and through the publisher Cyberwit.net
