Emotions in Motion: A Book of Poetry

"Emotions in Motion - A Book of Poetry" is a roller coaster ride of human emotions through poetry which crosses into prose at times. The goal of writing these poems was to expose deep and true human emotion in its raw form, and not just the happy emotions. Some of these poems are based upon my life but many are works of fiction or slightly exaggerated reality, the truth is all in the emotion.

May some of these poems bring you comfort in times of difficulty. May some remind you that you’re not alone, no matter how dark your life may be. May some bring you joy and give you the warmth of love when you’re feeling cold. May some bring you hope and may others just make you laugh.
