A Life Emerging chronicles three years of author Elán Yardena's life, when Yardena was finally able to overcome a lifelong struggle with depression. The poems are not meant to be a literal reporting of events but rather an expression of Yardena's deepest emotions and thoughts during that time.

There is a completely subjective and imaginative aspect to the poetry collection, which seeks to represent Yardena's personal journey. A Life Emerging describes the psychological and emotional path to self-discovery-overcoming the past by finding the perfect solution, having the right therapist, learning mindfulness meditation, and writing poetry as a way to express the issues and solutions more clearly.

Hiding

The life others see, so small and incomplete,
the tip of the iceberg, hiding much more below,
concealing evidence of trauma.
The soul, fragile and brittle, a fall leaf crumbling,
projects competence, an image for others.
Only a matter of time before falling apart.
An incongruity between self and the mask,
with truth wanting to prevail.

Time to let truth emerge, no longer avoiding
fearful thoughts and emotions, at peace with the shadow
without becoming ensnared.

Feelings jump and shift, instant tears go unexplained,
triggered unconsciously by invisible connections
watching without, reacting or hiding.
What are they saying?
Where is the key?
