New Book: Timeless Tales

My journey into poetry began the spring of 2017 in the waiting room of a doctor’s office. I captured the beginning in the first poem of my debut book of poetry to be released August 12 (Hardback, paperback, and eBook).

The Beginning

I sat in the waiting room, sad and alone.
My wife’s life of pain wore me down to the bone.

So many misfortunes came into my life.
Was I doomed to endure all this pressure and strife?

Helpless feelings and hopelessness cut to my soul.
That small child within me I had to console.

Sad times fell like garbage just dumped on my head.
Will this darkness consume me or shape me instead?

A rhyme rose within me, it caused me to smile.
It focused my thoughts, I escaped for a while.
