After publishing 12 works from deep within me, the innate urge to express myself in an entirely different manner overtook me.
As far back as I can remember, reading poetry has always been a passion. It may well have been one of the key factors in choosing English Literature as my college major.
This collection is the result of exposing my soul and heart in a way I’d never dreamed of doing.
While my other works in publication are integral parts of me, I now understand that poetry is the essence of who I was, am, and forever will be.
With the understanding that these are my inaugural offerings and with the compassion to allow a heart without and soul within to falter, I hope you enjoy my poems.
