About the book

How can you deny me of my form?

Hibiscus, Kishawna's debut poetry book, challenges us to examine what we've been through and remember who we are. Hibiscus features a collection of poems that dive into topics of resilience, love, lust, mental health, and navigating a career in STEM. This intimate selection of poetry will leave you feeling seen, hopeful, and empowered. Kishawna partnered with the talented Melissa Mathieu for the illustrations throughout the book.
