This time I won’t pretend.
The truth will flow,
And I will let go.
The pen has control;
The thunder begins to roll.
The water pours from the clouds,
Like the pain pours from my heart onto this page.
This is only the beginning stage.
It took a long time for Makayla Brooke to understand that her personal experiences could be filled with both beauty and ugliness and, most importantly, poetic insight.
Within her debut collection of poems, Makayla reflects on a variety of themes and subjects that include heartbreak, abuse, grief, trauma, and much more. As she lyrically explores how she learned to find her way in a complex world and heal from her emotional wounds, Makayla shares a raw glimpse into her beautiful disaster as she bravely faced difficulties, attempted to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles, and focused on creating a new beginning with every sunrise.
Beautiful Disaster is a debut collection of poetry and prose that holds truth, love, hope, and a wake-up call for anyone feeling alone, broken, or lost in life.
