"Self-Portrait" is a collection of poetry written from 2018 to 2021. There are no stakes here except the passing of time and Death. Those are the inevitable and immeasurable facts of our life. I do not fear them, yet they hold me at gunpoint, waiting for the wrong place at the wrong time. I am halted. So, this is how I remember that life is so much more than what I can see. By showing you what I've been through, immortalizing my existence within you, I hope it'll help you enjoy the ride.
This is a collection of poetry that has long waited to fall into the ether's hands. I am proud of what has been accomplished here and do not waste hope on the revelation that this is my truth. Effortless and Uncanny. The me you see here does not match up to the being inside me. For I am forever shifting and changing, always creating in creation. I love her who lies here in immortalization. I am not her. I am no longer she who which resides in these pages. I am Jo. The author of this book is Jordyn Moguel, do you know her?
