52 poems that journal the year no one predicted.
You want emotions? We've got them.
"Joy, euphoria, anger, disgust, frustration, excitement, fear" And that's just one poem It really is. Go on, look inside now and turn to Poem 3, 'A Range of Emotions'
Can you remember what you felt when lockdown was announced? When Boris was moved to Intensive Care or President Trump refused to admit defeat? How about the killing of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter protests? Summer? Halloween? Christmas? All in here.
We all had our own experiences of 2020 and this collection of poems shares just one perspective, but reflects the national and global picture too:
- the universal experience of trying to stay safe and looking after family
- the terrifying experience of losing 90% of our business and your team's resilience to somehow survive and thrive.
- the unique experience of a world living through a pandemic lockdown and its effect on our mental health.
What began as a fun commitment to write and film a poem a week for Linked In, became a treasured book of memories, reflecting the 'unprecedented rollercoaster' that led us to the 'new normal' and a way to raise money for leukemia research through the Don't Look Down fund.
