Life throws us curveballs and we have hurdles to get over. It was not easy at times, but it wasn't life making it hard, it was me. It may have taken me awhile to get to where I want to be in life, but I am getting there, closer every day. Looking back it has been the most amazing journey and will continue to be. For this I am grateful. We all go through struggles in life that can send us to dark spaces. In writing these poems I worked my way out of those spaces. It is my hope that if any of my poems can inspire and help, but one person get through, then I have paid it forward! Which to me is the greatest asset someone can give to another. I chose to carry on and let there be light…so can you.
