If Animals Could Speak (Book Launch)
In my journey to change behavior and address climate change and wellness issues through Alchemus Prime, and many years prior, I’ve been capturing my inspirations and reflections through words.
My mom has been saying to me for years to publish my poetry. It always felt like an overwhelming task. I’ve been writing since I was ten. I didn’t know where to start compiling my poems.
One weekend in February, after some intense meditation and intention-setting, I categorized seven years of poetry into eight volumes based on emergent themes. The first theme: animals, has culminated into a compilation I call One Friend, and is now available via Amazon’s CreateSpace. It fits within a greater theme of social justice and climate change.
This book addresses two topics. The first is what animals might say if they could speak; I have channeled the words of animals in factory farms, and animals affected by climate change. The second perspective is of those who are working to liberate animals.
The largest source of global greenhouse gases is animal agriculture. So, it is fitting that my first poetry publication center on the perspectives of our friends, the animals, and those of us who are committed to their freedom.
I am grateful to my mom for her persistence; I don’t think this launch, and the poetry books to follow, would be possible without it.
