In "Three Years Later: Poems of Loss, Love, and Renewal," we embark on a profound journey through the various human emotions that we can experience after a life's crisis, bridging grief and a sense of loss to healing, love, and redemption.
The fourteen poems highlight the passage of time, as it weaves its transformative magic and washes away any unprocessed emotions that we were still harbouring.
In this collection, you will find both verses of solace around love and loss, and inspiration to let go, shed old beliefs and paradigms, and emerge on the other side with a fresh outlook, full of energy, and a renewed sense of wonder.
Like many, Javier Ortega-Araiza found his life turned upside down in the aftermath of 2020. This led him down a path of deep introspection, one in which he had to rebuild his life from the very foundations. People say that in those moments, our life flashes before our eyes, and it is very true. Three Years Later is a way to make sense of that experience as far as it can be made sense of with words.
