Storm of Hope: God, Preeclampsia, Depression and me is a memoir told in journal entries and poetry from a mom who was diagnosed with preeclampsia.

A Question

“Are you happy?”
I hear the question,
soft and steady.
It lands like an anvil at my feet.

“Are you happy?”
I’m asked again.
The answer doesn’t come and
I wonder after all the
façade, and back and forth lies,
did I take a wrong turn somewhere?

Or was my inner prisoner shouting
and in her screams,
she is finally heard.
