Shallows of My Trenches
My debut poetry book!
Life is full of firsts. Many are familiar with the experiences of love, love lost, and coming through to the other side of trying times and that is just what Shallows of My Trenches encompasses. Shallows of My Trenches captures the feelings of being in love, losing love, moving, and navigating through beginning again in a real, emotional, raw, and honest manner. While writing about the common sensations felt in early adulthood, Maren Hoflund gives our own experiences with these sensations room to be felt again and processes her own experiences at the same time. In the middle of the chaos, love and life is found again and we understand that as we find empowerment and overcome our own trenches as she overcomes her own.
