About the Book
Equal parts trauma narrative and joyful rejoicing, Trial by Existence is a poetry chapbook that follows a speaker on the difficult journey from trauma to triumph. It delves into the mind and shows the complex emotions of a survivor struggling to find hope. A deeply vulnerable and psychological collection, it exposes ugly truths about surviving abuse and the challenges of faith faced in the healing process. Trial by Existence delights in giving voice to the darkness and is ultimately a story of hope, perseverance, and healing.
