From the Author
I have mentioned in previous posts that my poems are semi-biographical and that they tell a story. Now that the poems are together, I can describe this work as a modern coming-of-age journey through the late teen and early twenties years. For many, this is a highly fluid period of life and personal matters such as a battle with depression can complicate matters even further.
There are a few new poems in the book (all located in the front). I wanted them there to serve as an introduction. It is something that was missing from the individual books. Also, I placed the new poems in the front because I did not want to change the order of the original poems. The poems are placed in order for a reason and with them all being together, the transitions between the original books become seamless. While I have new, unreleased poems, I will not add them to this manuscript. I feel the series is complete.
