This triumph of perseverance is this collection of 56 poems written by Mental Health Advocate and Founder of Joshbus.com and his guest writers including TEDx Speaker Marcelino "Frost Flow" DeCosta and foreword by Angela Gorran, Olympian Contender & Athlete Ambassador for the Canadian Wildlife Federation and Founder of SokJok Inc & Endurance Insurance.
A nearly ten year battle with depression and ten unsuccessful suicide attempts has surcome to this collection of poems. Each poem represents overcoming the odds with malicious individuals and mental illness trying to make you give in along with finding an identity and worth in an evolving society. Joshua embodies a warrior in each poem he writes, with the ‘never give up’ attitude demonstrating to others to take pride in their character and journey while leaving a lasting legacy in their lifetime.
