From the Hearti is a collection of poems written over the years, with short stories included that inspired the writing of each one. My first poem, written when I was nine years old, was right after the death of my mother.
As with all my poetry, when I couldn't get words out of my head, I had to sit down and write about my feelings, my thoughts, my sorrows, and my happiness.
Unable to talk to anyone about my feelings, I expressed my dreams, my hopes for a better life in my writing. Things never shared with anyone before are exposed here.
As many of my hidden feelings come to light-some good, some heartbreaking-or at least they were heartbreaking to me at the time-I hope you enjoy taking a walk back in time with me.
