Bared (2021)
To reveal our true self we must strip our self bare leaving ourselves vulnerable . As humans we must embrace our flaws to embrace our true beauty.

Strength (2021)
As amazing as we are as humans we never know our strength until we rise from the ashes from where we had fallen from. Its up to us to get back up and position our self in a better position.

Heart Desires (2021)
It is amazing to help others but sometimes we get caught up in other people needs and forget about our own desires, passion , and what we enjoyed. Heart Desires is a reminder about how self care is important.

Life is beautiful and frustration. sometimes we want to rant, scream, break things . That frustration we use as fuel to brake free of the chains that have us bond.
