About the Book
A life well-lived is one filled with emotion. From the mundane to elation, love, pain, sorrow, stress, strain, and everything in between, we are here to embrace our experiences, and hopefully, learn something along the way. “Thoughts of You: A Poetic Journey Through Love, Pain, Relationships & Acceptance” explores the raw emotions of everyday life. It invites readers to reminisce, reconcile, acknowledge, and embrace their past and keep a keen eye on their future. If you’ve known the joys of life or experienced the highs of new, profound love or even struggled to get through one more minute, one more hour— this poignant poetic journey is for you. It’s a balm for the soul, a salve for old wounds, and a much-needed inspiration for the path forward.
About the Author
Krishawna Crum is a student of life. A graduate of the University of Mississippi, and a Holly Springs, Mississippi native challenges herself every day to learn something new. She is an avid reader and listener of a wide range of topics that include but are not limited to politics, Black history, American history, health and wellness, comedy, psychology, spiritual, and animal studies. Her love of writing was born out of a need to express her emotions following the death of her father when she was only eight years old. She soon discovered she could transform her overwhelming grief into words. She has carried that valuable lesson with her throughout her life and now writes poetry to bring peace to a chaotic world, to speak from her heart, and to acknowledge the raw emotions of life. When she is not writing, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, listening to just about any genre of music, dancing, singing, and enjoying life with her teenage son.
