I can seriously say, “move aside Rupi, because Megan O’Keeffe is here to give you a run for your money.” With intricate lines, and intimate detail, Megan leads us through an emotional roller coaster of a journey filled with love, self-doubt, desperation, the grief of losing a loved one, and self-reconciliation. The words are written with the sort of emotion…
