Throughout the course of our lives it is guaranteed we will encounter many life events. For some, these events will be sources of happiness, excitement, hardship, stress, trauma, or all of the above! These moments in our lives shape us as individuals, whom we become, and our revelations. My poetry integrates individuals that have a connection throughout this world because of similar life events and occurrences they have experienced. My book simply illustrates, “We all encounter ripples in our lives that can become good waves or bad waves; it does not make us good or bad people; only human”!
