About the Book

This cover is filled with words from my heart. Whether sad and lonely, or a dedication to family, love and being just me, these words are personal. Many focus on love during my “coming of age” and navigating dating and relationships. If these words speak to you, all the better. Most of the poems are short but all of them convey my deep emotion. Family is the theme of one specific poem. My family means the world to me, so I have to dedicate this book to them and their support in getting the book published. Look for the poem “My Sisters.” It’s personally one of my favorites. Also look for “Show Me the Love - It’s a Family Thang.” To my friend Emilia. You’ve encouraged me for over twenty years to write. Thank you for being there. To Sandra H. Thanks for the push. You’re a great Life Coach. And most importantly, Rick. Thanks, my sweetheart. You’ve been there through so many ups and downs. Thanks for your love and support. Love you and our kids and grandkids!

About the Author

I write to convey the feelings that are locked inside of me. I write of love, loss, indecision and pain. The depths of my feelings seem endless sometimes, and I can’t always say what I need to at any given time. Writing helps. I would like to think that I have been influenced by great poets Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, James Baldwin and Nikki Giovanni. You be the judge of that, I love those authors and fantasize that I would have enjoyed life during the Harlem Renaissance.
