'Lyrical, narrative and reflective I Find My Strength in Simple Things is an important addition to the spoken word canon.’
-JOELLE TAYLOR

Political, funny, heart-breaking, I Find My Strength In Simple Things is an exploration of growth, chaos and relationships. In homage to Desree’s spoken word performances, a majority of the poems are paired with QR codes, which link to films of the performances that made her. Desree invites us to care, explore and to find our strength with her, using thought-provoking one-liners and her incredible stage presence. I Find My Strength In Simple Things, will have you laughing and crying, as you are reminded the human experience is a messy one.

'I Find My Strength In Simple Things comes loaded with honesty, clarity, and the bottomless depth of a tremendous writer & performer applying her skills to create a collection of poems that battle racial and gender injustices, display self-empowerment, and aren't afraid to be chillingly sincere in an age of cynicism.'
- THE REPEAT BEAT POET
