It has been said, “Stick and stones might break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” But for some people words can hurt and make life miserable. Victoria Raines finds a light of hope and courage though writing her deepest thoughts on paper. The words began to move her life forward. When her life seemed so bleak and pointless - instead of ending the suffering and pain with a quick gash to her wrist, she chose to pick up a pen to spill droplets of despair and hopefulness on paper – each phrase she wrote literally took her on an amazing journey of faith - saving her life and healing wounds within her young, tender heart. Blood on Paper may be symbolic in a world of literature, but for a writer, desperate to find a reason to live, Victoria Raine discovered a true inspiration that empowered her to climb out from a hopelessness – somehow each line she wrote revealed a mystery to happiness and a way to leave behind a world filled with grief. People might say it was an epiphany - that may be true, but truer yet, I think it brought her tribulations to a remarkable end. The inspiration to create such powerful poetry was the miracle she needed – for the reader, Blood on Paper is a celebration of life that could very well change the lives of the broken-hearted, in a very poetic way.
