    Stunning writing. Such restraint and beauty. And strength. Very lovely. I get the sense the writer is as strong as the voice on the page. And I hope she knows how strong that is.

    The beauty of language, the restraint in telling just what was meant to be told…they all merge to make this a treasure.
    Well done, Keema.

    Extremely moving. It’s hard to write about trauma without sounding self pitying, yet you do this. It’s really hard to write about hope without sounding canned–this you do so very, very well. Beautiful!

    Fucking brilliant. Poetic. Righteous in its on right. Never, put a pen down, whatever you do. Keep creating new pathways through which grief, your grief, my grief and all of our griefs can leak through to the light.
