This book has a collection of poems that can show you there is always someone who understands. Someone who can relate or makes you think about a current situation in your life. I wrote this book to show a different side to life. I do not see life through rose colored glasses. I like to tell the real story. Some poems are based off of my own experiences in life while others are just about what I saw on the news that day. There is a poem in here for everyone. Even if you are not going through a bad time in your life you can relate to some of these poems. If any of these poems make you rethink something you said or did or even change your perspective on something, I have done my job. These poems show the world in a light that not many are used to seeing. I prefer to show people the world I always see. The life I have been living or the life I have grown used to being brought up in. This world can be an interesting and frustrating place. I wanted to make this book to show you and many others Life As I Know It.
