When people ask, "did you always want to be a poet?" I tell them, "not really. I didn't even think I'd still be alive at this point."

I lived in an environment where it was very difficult to grow and I often felt like i was no good and misunderstood; I was the bad child, the black sheep, the ‘never going to amount to anything’, slutty, selfish girl. But it was through writing that I found a way to escape the toxicity of where I grew up and discover who I really was outside of who I was expected to be. (That’s the watered-down, internet version of things).

“I just want you to know that your literary work has healed something inside of me.”

the worst of me

This poetry book is both heartbreaking and heart-strengthening. It gives words to the raw emotions that we feel on the rollercoaster of healing. It's not linear and it's not always pretty. Alisha's words are raw, beautiful and so relatable! The format of this book is amazing and adds to the realness and vulnerability of it all. There is room for YOU not just her words.

This entire series has shifted my mindset and helped me dive into myself and the world around me and my own interactions with my past present and future self. Very much worth the read over and over, lend it to a friend, buy it for a loved one, and open your mind in your relationships personal romantic, and even as a parent.

When writing truly touches your soul in this way it is an experience like no other. Knowing you are not alone and that surviving the hardest things is not only possible but can lead to the most amazing places you have ever been. I hope to be there too someday. Thank you for sharing this with the world. It makes all the difference to those who are on their own journey still of breaking...healing...letting go...being made new. Wherever this path takes me she is coming too and I am grateful to have her by my side helping me fight.

Such an amazing poet! I’m not typically one to go deep into a book, but I couldn’t help it with Still Growing Wildflowers. I have SO many post it notes so I can go back and relate over and over again. 100% recommend!

beautifully written and raw. Alisha's work always rocks me to my core and reminds that it's okay to feel what I feel.

This is poetic cinema. Borne of seeds planted by hurt and abuse and religious trauma; blooming into a wildflower garden where the author sees weeds as what they truly are - new life and perspectives coming up through situations where we’re told nothing good can ever grow. She turns “just a weed” into milkweed for herself to give life to butterflies. You will cry, laugh, and relate to more than you even think possible because we are all still growing wildflowers.

Alisha has once again delivered a poetry book that sculpts words into art to bring some of a woman's deepest, most poignant feelings and emotions to life. She captured the raw essence of womanhood, not shying back from her sensual side but celebrating it as an important facet of her authentic whole self. This poetry will speak to any woman who has loved, who has lost, who has wondered if love is even worth it and will remind you gently that always, love is always worth it, especially when that love is directed towards yourself.

I’m in love with this series. Watching the author’s growth in her healing and self worth takes you on a journey in your own. This book is about breaking free, saying the words out loud that you’ve longed to say for too long, and grabbing ahold of the life you deserve to live. Make sure you grab all of Alisha’s books, because they just get better and better. You won’t regret it.

It’s what I didn't know I needed right now on my healing journey. It’s beautiful, relatable, and opened my mind in a way allowing me to put thoughts to my feelings.
