Bone. Visceral. Close to. Stark.
The poems in Yrsa Daley-Ward's collection Bone are exactly that: reflections on a particular life honed to their essence - so clear and pared down, they become universal.
From navigating the oft competing worlds of religion and desire to balancing society's expectations with the raw experience of being a woman in the world; from detailing the experiences of growing up as a first-generation black British woman to working through situations of dependence and abuse; from finding solace in the echoing caverns of depression and loss to exploring the vulnerability and redemption in falling in love, each of the raw and immediate poems in Daley-Ward's Bone resonate to the core of what it means to be human.
"You will come away bruised.
You will come away bruised
but this will give you poetry."
Foreword by Kiese Laymon, author of Long Division.

I have been a long time fan of the artist, healer, we know as Yrsa Daley-Ward. I fell in love with this book instantly, Which was very odd, Becos I discovered this book by accident (during a ruff period in my life) ²years ago. The words are healing as you read, each chapter you will feel the heart heal. I absolutely love the Audible® production, it enriches the experience even more.
