My poems have been my solace and my strength. They have helped me clarify and collect my thoughts when life shifted and I had to find my footing again. Because I wrote these poems for my own reflection, I did not dilute any reactions to the feelings that emerged. I did not avoid asking questions, seeking answers, expressing pain, confusion, betrayal or despair. I also embraced moments of blessing, hope, relief, clarity and peace. In writing these poems, I was able to find “My Truest Voice” which I share here hoping they resonate with you and bring you peace, hope and joy.
