Introduction

Have you ever been moved to write poetry? Sometimes emotions are best described through verses that allow each reader to interpret in a way that is meaningful to them. Well, that’s exactly how this book came to be—in my quest to write at least one poem each month for the past 20 years—to chronicle my experiences and my feelings.

​Like life itself, you will find in the journey through this collection, how each chapter explores and presents the infinite challenges and rewards you most likely encounter throughout life. There is little doubt It takes courage, discipline, and dedicated persistence to overcome obstacles and life’s challenges. It was these qualities that continued to surface while scribing my poems.

You will find a full chapter devoted to death. The selections here are not about being morbid—instead, an awareness that death is part of life.
