Embrace & Unravel is about trying to find yourself in other people, finding the right people, and convincing yourself you’ve moved on. This poems and short essay in this work explore the different feelings of angst and longing associated with what we consider love, what love looks like when it’s what we need, and the feelings associated with figuring life out.
Compiled over 3-4 years, these poems chronicle some of the thoughts and feelings of the author as they learned more about themselves and unlearned a lot about life as they knew it at the same time. Though the poems mostly focus on love, processing all the emotions related to a coming-of-age era are at the heart of the scribblings in this book.
