Like most others, the author has experienced adversity and loss whether personally or by witnessing others’ experiences. The author is very sensitive and significantly empathizes with others and animals in different situations.
Through the writing of poetry, the author has experienced catharsis in many ways. Tears were genuinely shed with the writing of nearly every poem.
The author includes a chapter based on a fictional character known as The Traveler. This diversion from other serious poetry allowed the author to delve into writing fantasy and takes the reader on a different type of journey.
No matter the reader’s pain or adversity, at least one of the authors poems is sure to resonate and hopefully encourage the reader to seek help or at least realize they are not alone. An old saying is certainly true... “We are more alike than we are different”.
While the writings discuss life matters such as suicide, hopelessness, adversity, and loss there are also rays of hope, love, inspiration, and peace.
