Towards Understanding
A Collection of 125 poems written in chronological order - Beginning with her childhood trauma and leading into her journey of finding healing and self worth, the author takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions through verse. In a style reminiscent of an artist painting with colors she explores various poem-structures - uncommon amongst modern poets.
Learn more about the book: 
Excerpt from the book:


We'll dig ourselves some grit,
And with our cardboard spoons,
And with our stiffened hands,
We'll work to find a spec of gold.
Never forgetting what's bought and sold,
Ever neglecting those we've worked to hold,
Forcing us on, the longing taking us there.
It's always lurking and beyond our control.
The pan grows rusty and holes appear,
Where the stones wore their way clear,
A pan, once new - once brought dreams,
Today - brings little more than despair.
Wondering where the paths we seek,
Could have hidden from our blistered feet.
The labyrinth shines well beyond our doors…
We are called the lost and the working poor.
