These poems are moments in my life, I estimate, between the ages of 23 and 28. These were not the good old days. These were just days when I didn’t know what to do with myself. I went from one thing to the next, and changed my mind as frequently as I took a breath of air. The only important thing that existed in my life was my daughter, and trying to find a way to make something out of nothing. Poetry for me is like therapy; it helps me rationalize and work through all the confusion in my mind. I have a love of the written word, and poetry is an entertaining and memorable means of communicating my ideas. This book is a collection of my emotions: these are my innermost thoughts about relationships, friendships, sorrow, pain, anger, frustration, and confusion.
