"Rose Oak" captures every part of our bravery, our fear, our regret, our turmoil, our pain, and our hope - planted at the roots of a single rose. This collection of poems incites themes that make us feel inadequate and ill equipped. Understanding our fears is a journey intended to make us stronger. For without our roots, we'd thirst and dry. Without our leaves, we'd never sway. Without our thorns, we'd be otherwise abused. Without our petals, we'd never see ourselves as beautiful.
Each piece of us, no matter the ache, no matter how broken, works to serve a purpose. This is that story.
