harleen bhogal’s debut poetry collection: lullabies for warriors
A memoir written in verse, a depression story awash with magical realism, a love letter to women of colour everywhere, lullabies for warriors is here to sit with its readers in their time of darkness and their time of healing. Written in three parts (“the storm”, “the sea” and “the winter”), this book’s poetry is evidence of a young woman’s internal battle.
In this collection we find poems about depression, loneliness, addiction, love, heartache, trauma, and healing. Accompanying these are poems about a journey: through seasons, islands, storms, and oceans. As the poems alternate between reality and fantasy, the narrator moves through mental illness, illustrating that the path to recovery is often not a straightforward or ordinary one.
