I really never thought much about becoming a poet. My writing poetry was a way of expressing my innermost feelings about things that affected my life or that I enjoyed or cared about. I think that you will sense a growing mataurity in my writing as you read more of my poems. My poems touch on a number of subjects such as life, death, nature, love of family, and love of God while others reflect on just ordinary things that each of us deal with in our lives.
I hope that reading these poems causes each of us to think more deeply about who we are and who we want to become. I hope some of them make us laugh at ourselves while others give us a different perspective about life.
I feel that God meant for this gift of poetry to be shared with others. That is why it is being published.
Enjoy the journey.
