My Life in Rhymes

140 pages59 minutes


My Life in Rhymes is a collection of poems, and musings written over the course of my lifetime and all of them hold a special place in my heart. From the memory of a small child that came from poverty standing in line for a government handout in the poem Little Boy Blue to the poem Running From the Storm which documents the emotions that raged in me during my personal battle with cancer: a battle that I am happy to say I won. These poems are in fact what I have experienced in my life and times. It is my hope that they in some small way, reach your heart, and that you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed creating them. Robert Frost simplified the definition of poetry by saying “Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.”

My Life in Rhymes documents, in poetic form, my life story and my emotions, in which I have indeed, found thought, and with the words that I found to express that thought, I hope will take the reader on a journey through the many aspects of this man’s very existence with me as the guide.
