Praise for This Is How Wildflowers Grow

"Mica's poetry collection shines a light on those darker parts of ourselves, and embraces who we can become by examining who we were." ⸺Caitlin Howle, writer, producer and host of Grave Escapes

I am an ice queen,
a fire prince,
a soldier of the earth,
a witness for the wind.
I am a phoenix and I have burned.
Touch me again,
I dare you.

This time,
you will burn.

And I Will Rise.

This is for the living, this is for the learning, for the bleeding, for the healing, for the growing. This Is How Wildflowers Grow sings with the knowledge of lessons that can only be learned the hard way. A survivor of childhood abuse, Mica tells their story without pulling punches and speaks with startling clarity and detail about their experience growing through and healing from trauma. Mica tackles themes such as loss of innocence, emotional abuse, sexual assault, and crises of identity with the same strength, grace, and wit that made it possible to heal. This collection of poems will make you wince, cry, laugh, wonder, and root for someone who believes in the power of vulnerability, the importance of growth and change, and that you should never stop throwing your whole heart into life.
