only if you let them is an illustrated narrative poem. it is the psychological journey of a woman named iris as she struggles to break free from societal conditioning. she peels through the layers of her mind in understanding what holds her back from being the fulfilled version of herself that she yearns to be.

only if you let them is a story for those who see things a bit differently - for the round pegs in the square holes, for the “social misfits”- to feel less alone. i hope that iris’s journey in finding her own voice leads as encouragement for those on a less traditional path and as an incentive to tap into the darkest places within ourselves.
