This collection of poems has been written over the past two years as the author has deepened his understanding of himself, and of the inner worlds that make up our own personal universe and how we perceive the world around us. Where do our beliefs come from? How did we become the person we are today? How does pain change us, and how can we change the pain? Inspiration for these poems came from the author's exploration of these and other issues in personal therapy, and through his counselling training, volunteer counselling, and his role as a support worker.
