a memoir by Chántelle Adanna

My Soul Told On Me is a memoir that gives you what you need—the safe space to be and the permission to feel, deeply. It serves as a vessel of unshaken truth and conversationally narrates the raw process in facing and fully accepting my flawed self. Through poems, mini-narratives, and prose, my soul respectively colors the prominence in finding, owning, and staying true to self. This work—my work—shares the unrefined and authentic blueprint in uncovering and valuing myself, my love, and my soul. Here, I reclaim everything that fruitfully serves my being as a multidimensional whole.
