Though poetry has been put into several categories, different types; myself I think there are only two categories, ‘I like it and I don’t like it’ . . . I have written my share of both. I have read poems and stories from some of the great writers, they all have writings I like and some I don’t like.
I have 2 binders full of poems and stories I’ve written over the years, and just as many that are incomplete; maybe one day I can finish some of them.
From a young age my dream was to be
a writer, to have my work published, but through the years my life took several different turns, paths that put my dream on hold. I’ve had my share of ups and downs, good and bad, yet through all of it my passion for poetry and my dream stuck with me.
Poetry has been my release valve, release from stress, nightmares, and daily worries. Some people sink into a book, a movie, etc. to escape reality for a while; I write.
The paths life has taken me down
with all its good and bad has only given me more to write about . . . God knows what He’s doing and what He’s going to do; in 2012 my dream come true and my prayer was answered; after being turned down by many publishers God put me with
Maple Hill Publishing, I now have 3 books published.
(1) “A Gun and the Cross”
(2) “The Darker Side of Life”
(3) “God, Soldiers and Rednecks”
I’m currently working on my 4th book titled
‘When Darkness Comes’ it contains a variety of
stories in rhyme. Stories of the supernatural, spiritual, love and lost loves,
God does answer prayers and dreams
can come true, so everyone hold to your faith and keep on dreaming.
