Chapter Two - Lavender
Lavender. The second chapter in the poetry collection Morning Air, Morning Light. This is the chapter, laced with patience and steeping with self-reflection. Lavender evokes the pause and gentle thought–the third-party perspective.

It was a radical debut,
escaping the sharp teeth of addiction,
that lurked in the shadows of surrounding–
now in the place of rehabilitation.
A few bad habits lingered,
and as my empathy grew,
I became apathetic towards the dissipating detachment.
I was no longer fastened to the flaws–
the opportunity of redemption renewed.
