Reconciled is a raw, unedited smathering of poetry that I wrote between ages of fifteen and thirty-six. Within its pages you’ll find highs, lows, in betweens, clinging to hope, romance, transformation, and good old fashioned sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll.
From the decaying gutters of personal hell to the dizzying heights of manic euphoria, this book chronicles Andrew L. Hicks’ deeply startling journey through depressions, addictions, transformations, reversions, and resurrections.
Gifted with poignant and bittersweet self-awareness, along with a rare and brutal ability to articulate the unfathomable, Andrew is on a mission to contribute to a growing cultural understanding of chemical dependencies and mental health limitations, transform stigma into clarity, and revolutionize treatment protocols for these issues that have destroyed countless lives and hindered people from reaching their dazzling potentials.
