About Straight from the Heart
Writing is a gift from God. I thought I would first publish short stories and next a novel. When I was thirteen, I wrote my first poem. When I was seventeen, I had a poetic thought that was not completed until many years later. Straight from the Heart is a collection of poems written over a period of years. I began writing more frequently from 2003 to 2007, a total of fifty-five poems. My daughter made comments on how much she enjoyed them and that I should write more.
Many of these poems are about my daughter and family. These poems come from deep, heartfelt feelings and points of view. This book is poetry at its finest. It is the poetry of love, triumph, journey, and .life. Coming straight from the heart.
