Toni Rose: grandmother (Mima), Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover Poet, Author, and mental health clinician from Boston. I am a survivor of sexual abuse and domestic violence, the mental and emotional abuse, diminished my self-esteem but it never broke me. I identify myself as visible invisible, humble in not needing to be seen but wanting to be heard.
Poetry has been instrumental in my personal growth and healing. My poetry has a strong emphasis on life struggles. I paint a picture with words that can be heart-wrenching truths.
I want to erase the taboo and stigma that goes with discussing trauma and mental health. I have been sharing my poetry for over 10 years starting at the Lizard Lounge where I spoke out against those transgressions of sexual abuse and domestic violence as well as shedding light on mental health - anxiety, depression and post traumatic stress disorder.
I have empowered others to find their voice using poetry, and writing. I have been working on a four part book series, navagating the world with as a survivor with trust issues.
The Blue Rose is a movement helping victims, survivors and their families heal from the taboos of trauma and mental health through art.
