I've wanted to write this book my entire life it seems. I remember telling my husband when we first met, "I'm writing a book", that was 20 years ago. I wasn't as ready as I thought I was back then, now things are different.
I can't thank my husband and daughters enough for their encouragement and loving support throughout. I am so loved.
I'm so happy to debut this book in 2020, the year of "seeing clearly".
So here it is, please welcome:
Out of the Weeds
A bouquet of poetry about surviving the never ending journey of self-acceptance, and learning self-care through writing. An altar, to breathe; to feel connected; offering poetry as a way to create a smile, even if it is through pain. A book on how to bloom, move on, survive major depression, and enjoy love. Finally, a healing of the little girl within whom is a wild flower.
From one reader:
"this book has the power to enable readers to find and accept their own identities. Your book is a poetic role model of the healing power of great poetry." - Terri

I want to thank Megan Febuary, of For Women Who Roar™ for providing a safe space for my poem. I can't begin to express how proud I am to be in the For Women Who Roar #MeToo Poetry eBook. It is empowering to take back your voice, and your self. This book allowed me to do that in a safe, and healing way.
The name of my poem is #Believed
