This journey through life is full of winding roads, obstacles and twists of fate that forever change our destinies. The things we encounter along the way affect us immensely. We all have a story to tell, one that is written by raw emotion. This book of poetry and prose happens to be mine.
When I was teenager, writing became my means to release all of the feelings trapped deep inside.
I would lock myself in my room for hours, spilling ink onto blank pages. In a world where I was so often misunderstood, writing gave me a voice. Several tragedies led me spiraling down a path of self-destruction, and after continuous soul-searching and self-healing, I finally found the inner strength needed to rise again.
Like a Phoenix ascending from the grave, I leave behind the ashes of my life scattered about these pages. I have learned a lot through my trials and tribulations and although my destination is still unknown, I will take the time to enjoy each stop along the way.
“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe
