We are three parts; body, spirit, and soul.

Emotion, which echoes all of our parts, is a multifaceted, multicoloured palette of feelings, a kaleidoscope of colors from the palest of white, to the deepest, darkest of black, and everything in between, all formed by three primary colors.

We use words to try to express ourselves, to paint a picture for others of how we feel.

Poetry does so in a succinct, no-holds-barred fashion, using words as color to paint our joy, our pain, our BEING.

Sometimes, we get glimpses of colors not usually shared, a snapshot that may reveal more than we intended.

“They are the songs of a survivor”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Elizabeta

Mercedes Lewis invites the reader to come along on her exploration of self. In such poems as “Touching Live Wire” and “Blues and Soul” she delves below the surface to raw and genuine places. And in “Keep Up” she challenges the reader to look beyond rhyming schemes. At a time when so many of us are endeavoring to rise and resist, these poems serve as a template for how to transcend. They are the songs of a survivor who gives her readers “glimpses of a fractured soul.”
