“Hidden Scars” Unveiled through Poetry
Emotions abound in the pages of poet-author J’Naye Wise’s book of poems
From the mind, heart and soul of J’Naye Wise comes a kaleidoscope of verses and lines that gives readers a quick glance of her past and present experiences and a glimpse of her visions and hopes. In “Hidden Scars”, she opens her doors so others can relate to her and identify with the emotions embodied in each poem.
It is a poetry book with a variety of poems on love, heartache, forgiveness, passion, family rivalry, abuse and today’s society. The author started writing poetry throughout her childhood when she became a foster child in high school. And all the sentiments felt throughout those years are fused in the pages of this book.
“…the ones published and shared with you in this book are ones that really stuck out to me the most and had the most emotion behind them,” shares the author.
She once hid her scars; now she is proud to show them to all because these became a testament of how she had withstood all the obstacles and had overcome the challenges — from childhood to womanhood to motherhood — and still end up standing, strong and whole.
