PANIC @athenamkaiman

Topic - Overcoming trauma


My heart is racing,

I can’t stop pacing,

Pain flares inside,

Memories won’t subside,

I hear the sounds,

My head begins to pound,

I cover my ears,

Suddenly you are here,

Your arms wrap around me,

Knowing I want to flee,

I struggle against you,

Fighting the rescue,

Tears begin to flow,

Panic begins to slow,

The flooding images go,

I’m nearing the plateau,

My breath slowly returns,

Stomach no longer churns,

Your hands hold my face,

Our eyes lock in an embrace,

My fear is receding,

Your love is succeeding,

As I conquer memories of death,

And inhale my first deep breath.

Your favourite quote: “Those who choose not to accept and respect the differences of others, doom us all to a life without dignity.” Athena M. Kaiman


Your one wish for the world: That we treat each other with dignity, acceptance, and respect, and that humanity finally evolves into a species that cares more about the Earth that sustains us, than for money.

A small bio about you:

After working in politics for many years, I decided to write the DAR & Earth Book Series to inspire the younger generation, particularly younger women, to change our world into a better place. It is my hope the books will inspire our youth to strive to save the Earth from climate change, which threatens not only the existence of humanity, but also the existence of the other species that live alongside of us.
