Survivors: Please be careful reading this poetry. Many of the poems have upsetting images, and a few contain actual triggers which may set off programs in susceptible individuals. This is less likely to happen if you remind yourself frequently that the poems are offered in the service of healing. It is wise to read only a couple of poems at a time: in this way, if you have a strong reaction, you can trace it to the particular poem or phrase that speaks to you.
