Storm of Hope
By Leila Tualla
Genre: Non Fiction/ Inspirational/ memoir/ poetry
Release Date: 21 July, 2017
Storm of Hope: God, Preeclampsia, Depression and me is a memoir told in journal entries and poetry from a mom who was diagnosed with preeclampsia. The diagnosis with her second pregnancy propelled the author into a “postpartum forest where the trees of doubt, sorrow, anger and rage loomed all around me.” What becomes to the author and her second baby gives way to hope and a way out of the darkness.
Excerpt # 1
“Are you happy?”
I hear the question,
soft and steady.
It lands like an anvil at my feet.
“Are you happy?”
I’m asked again.
The answer doesn’t come and
I wonder after all the
façade, and back and forth lies,
did I take a wrong turn somewhere?
Or was my inner prisoner shouting
and in her screams,
she is finally heard.
