Yet, this last year taught me that sometimes being merciful doesn't mean staying quiet or playing nice.
It means reaching out, speaking up, yelling "STOP!" when someone's actions, words, or body language seem to come against you and make you feel uncomfortable, inferior, or inadequate.
As you can clearly see, a lot of sticks and stones have been thrown at me but I've decided to use them to rebuild me and all the people who have ever felt the same.
I hope these poems give you the courage to know the difference between when to be merciful and knowing when to be merciless, and when to walk away from people who always make it a point to focus on your mistakes.

About the Author

Chelsea DeVries wanted to be a writer at the age of 7. Her first publishing credit came at the age of 14 with a poem in a student anthology. She then wrote nonstop while doing IB classes in high school. She published two YA novels while still in high school which after over 10 years she rewrote as a NA romance that she looks to put out in the coming year. She is a seeker of justice and uses her words to free this world’s outcasted, peculiar, and underdogs from the chains that bind them. When not writing she runs and does PR for authors and musicians with her bookish brand The Smart Cookie Philes. Though she’s Florida born and raised, she has New Jersey in her veins. She currently lives in Port Richey, FL with her squad of three dogs.
