Being able to write poetry is a gift from God. I didn't realize that I had such a gift until I finished high school. That's when I began to experience different aspects of life. As I encountered each situation, it seemed as though I could not get immediate relief from the emotional feelings, which reminds me of a slogan I once heard, "In order to appreciate the sun in your life you have to appreciate the rain."
Though all the poems contained in this book are not my personal experience, sometimes it seems as if I step inside the shoes of pain of others. Writing poetry helps me relate to and understand people and what they may be experiencing.
I hope each of you enjoy and find comfort in this spirit-filled book of poems.
May God bless you all.
