Ardi Krum wrote poetry to express emotions and thoughts during her years of earnestly seeking God. A God who, through a congregation of evangelicals, she grew to fear yet sincerely begged for his love. Her inquisitive mind needed answers concerning doctrine yet the church demanded a life based solely on faith and questions were discouraged. So, even with the threat of a wrathful God, Ardi began reaching outside her circle to professors and scholars. Ardi encountered people who could answer her questions based on scientific facts. Over time both the stories and the poetry change from a defeated young woman pleading with a deity for acceptance to a woman brazenly stepping outside the shadow of the cross. Through an unquenchable thirst for answers, supported by facts, you see the transformation from a humiliated fallen angel to a primate rising up and awakening as the Fifth Ape.
