Meet the Author

Shalight Saja is a fighter and chooses to be defined as such. She is an eighteen-year-old survivor of years of physical, emotional, and sexual assault by a familial same-sex perpetrator. Yet she has been blessed by a Father who loves her, friends who support her, and pens lying atop blank paper.
Shalight began writing as an outlet for venting at age twelve. As her understanding of what was happening deepened, so did her love for poetry. Venting became vocalizing, and writing became her tool to explain to herself and others what she has experienced.
Her writings on violence and what it leaves behind are compiled in Purple Eyes.

This beautiful little book had me crying, smiling, and feeling the warm arms of comfort that come with the knowledge that someone else has been there, too. Our stories are different, but the feelings are the same. The poetry is best understood by reading in sequential order--Saja's story is revealed with each poem. After the first reading, though, the poems stand on their own. Whenever I'm feeling down, I real a poem to lift my spirits and put things into perspective. Not normally a poetry person, I mean it all the more when I say this is one of my favorite books.
