This is a poetry book about transition from trauma and turmoil through relationships to spirituality and the ability to laugh at one’s troubles. We have all fought through anguish, hopefully to become better citizens of life. The poetry covers my formative years growing up with abuse on a farm in the Ozarks, my adult relationships, and my transition to the shores of the coastal bend of Texas. I bear my heart and soul on these pages, but hopefully I also bear witness to the fact that there is a better way, and it is possible to overcome.
