Hani is an incredibly brave writer. This book is a cathartic journey, purging her hardship through the creation of beauty. Hani throughout the pain of her experiences has kept hope and joy alive through her poetry. From Somalia to Christmas Island detention to Sydney, the theme of Hani's challenging life has been and still is "I Will Rise." The poems are full of passion, emotion and intellectual depth.
The kind of passion that tears at the reader/listener and forces us to question our own role in keeping prolific artists like this locked away from Australian shores. The richness of her language and the vividness of her imagery signals the beginnings of a great writer. Keep watching this poet." Miles Merril- Word Travels
