It is easy to wallow in the shadows and to dwell on pain. Dig deep and find the strength to walk past the darkness and resentment. Within these pages, you will discover that there is hope for letting go and recovering from abuse, loss, grief, and heartbreak. There is hope for brighter days and new beginnings. Within this raw collection of poetry, connect with your inner self. You will find a reflection of your own emotions, thoughts, and battles. Discover a sense of serenity in knowing that you are not alone.

In other words, Swirling Emotions: Poetic Therapy is a story told in poems, both long prose poems and short free verse, about a girl who survived grief, heartbreak, trauma, abuse, isolation, and living on her own at a young age. As raw as is the first part of this “fictionalized poetic memoir,” Donna Kessler just as powerfully lifts the readers by the end of Swirling Emotions with happiness, healing, love, and self-discovery. Kessler’s story drowns the reader in black tidal waves like a tsunami, then rescues with clear, crystal waves, sparkling into serenity. Readers who have been through any kind of trauma, dealt with grief, or known hard times will benefit from reading this book as it shows recovering and healing. Kessler’s poetic skill draws readers through her life experiences toward self-reflection of their own personal experiences.
