Piggybacked is a collection of poems that evokes universal experiences of beauty, pain, suffering, longing, joy, mirth, dreams, and nightmares, allowing the reader a glimpse into the unorthodox world view of the poet. With thought-provoking imagery, these poems delve into the paradoxes of our own human existence. The inspiration for this book came from the author's relationship with her late grandfather, also a poet, and their individual quests for freedom. The title of the book is an expression of ancestral ties that bind us through the generations.
