Her focus is on protecting her son, but it’s possible she has been protecting the wrong family member.The Bird: Held hostage by the intricacies of a disturbed mind, a patient will go to any lengths to secure the attention of her love interest.The Queen: The speculative story of Jezebel and her quest for mischief and mayhem and the desecration of relationships based in fear.The Poetry“Transformation” explores the emotional journey of self-discovery from despair, through the rugged path of resistance to the completions of self-acceptance.In “Pride”, the vice is stripped away, to reveal that it is only a shield- a form of protection from the realities of self.Faced with difficult choices and uncomfortable circumstances, “Resilience” illustrates overcoming perceived annihilation through belief and acceptance of all differences.
