Abstract

This is a collection of poems centered around the experiences of my family during the Khmer Rouge's control that last from 1975-1979. The Cambodian people were robbed of their voice and forced into silence. This collection serves as an attempt to restore their voices. And as with life, though there are heavy and chilling moments, there are still moments of beauty.
