Everything in this world is sugar-coated. At first glance, we all see only the beauty, the beauty in the lie. But slowly, this sugar melts and that's when the truth hits us. Raw and bitter. Hard to face. We feel like running away. Giving up. But we don't. We keep fighting; even if we lose, we get up and carry on. Why? Because of the hope. Even in the horrifying truth, there is a streak of hope that keeps us going. This truth, this hope, is what makes life. And this life, in verse, is what makes this book.
