by Ginny C. Worley
The lives of those souls who have suffered at the hands of abuse are a long and arduous journey along a path of utter darkness. If not careful, their walks along the precipice of despair can drop them into the very bowels of insanity and the edge of life and death. Where is the light needed to find the path back from the brink? How does one face down the demons sitting in wait at the borders?
Ginny C. Worley has walked these bleak borders and survived. She tells her tail of victim to victor in Poems from the Edge, a stark and revealing poetic voyage through pain and anger turned inward. The torments of the mind and soul are revealed and explored in sharp detail and then, with courage and faith, brought together again as a whole.
Poems from the Edge encourages readers to tighten their grasp and hold on. When darkness is all around, and fear, hopelessness, and intense pain are all around, don’t give up. Ginny knows the strength needed to maintain is inside you. Never lose sight that as long as you are able to draw a breath, there is hope.
