This book is not just sheets of paper combined with words. It is a force of creativity, pain, and laughter. This book defines different, but real life situations in which individuals go through daily. The author takes both her own experiences along with others as she combines them all to create a strong message. This book serves as a reflection of hope, struggle, joy, commitment, hunger, friendship, and love. The mission of this book of poetry is to broaden one's thoughts as well as touch their soul. To let those in a struggle know that they are not alone, and a reminder to those on good terms to hold on. Perhaps one can look at this book as a message that is no longer hidden. It is a message of survival and inspiration. A Poet's Heart is a message to those who are able to stand the truth, as well as forgive the past. So if you think you are alone in this world....let me introduce you to A Poet's Heart.

This has definitely been a work in progress for you, I can tell. I enjoyed many pieces in this book! (ex. "Versus Me & You," "Her vs. Me,"and "Blind.") I can see a progression of the wording and phrasing as it matures throughout. I can see some poetry slam material in here! You should definitely try to do a slam reading!! The meter and flow of all your pieces are wonderful! Very tight messages and profound concepts! A few spelling errors I caught...make sure you thoroughly proofread you next book! All in all.. good read!!
