Dancing with Demons
I had been writing in a journal since I was very young, probably about twenty years ago. I am now thirty- three. I was always afraid of being mocked for my poetry. One day a friend read my work and I saw the emotion my work envoked. The more open I became, the more positive reinforcement I received to push myself and work on getting my collections published. It has been a very difficult and frustrating process, and I hope that all these years of writing will pay off and I can finally feel like I have achieved something in my life. I have had God by my side at all times, and I know He will always be there; waiting for me to ask Him for guidance and strength. It is when I am ignorant and I am determined to self destruct that I am surrounded by evil. There are forces that surround us that we cannot comprehend. We can ride the waves of darkness until there is nothing left for us to live, or we can believe that we will prosper through our faith in God. I have done both with such consistency that I find myself in limbo. I have chosen to dance with my demons; because I believe in my heart that I could never defeat them in the end unless I have learned their ways. There will come a time when I shall have to face my worst fears. I am not sure what happens after we die, and that is terribly frightening. This is an anthology of my battles within my conscience that determine the decisions I make, whether they be good or bad. Again, I hope this can touch a few people so that when I face my judgment I may be redeemed for the sins I have committed.

Saw a bookmark and the pictures that I browsed through were different..a little different book..but great reading..poetry is unique
I want to start off with saying anyone intrested in finding a book that makes you actually think, you have found it. I was skeptical at first never hearing of this auther before, but something inside me allowed me to take a shot and order it. Since then I have read it top to bottum and find new meaning in each line everytime I pick up the book. Miguel has a way of putting words together that reach your soul. I sometimes find myself in the middle of the day thinking of some line or poem from his book. Dancing with Demons, we all do it but, Miguel Garcia gives everyones battles life. I would recommed this book to anyone looking to find meaning to a world that can be frightening and lonely.
