A way of life was changed forever, When, the sails appeared in the bay. When my wife told me I had to leave, it was just after New Year s Eve 2000. A catalyst for change. If ever, there was one. At 38, I had to take a good look, at who I was, And how, I had arrived there.. This collection of stories was written, so I could have a better understanding of myself. To be honest, about my role, in my life. The good. The bad, and the ugly. Each rhyme created, by the emotion I felt, while contemplating different situations i had been involved in since I was a child. A friend of mine told me once, theres a poem in there for everyone. I would like to think he was right. My, journey of discovery, has taken me to some amazing places, and allowed me to do things I could only have dreamed of. The most amazing thing of all..., I had become someone I could live with!!
