As I sit and begin to write these lines

I'm reminded of a much earlier time

I must have been 8 when I first began

To create prose with a pen in my hand

Although most times it was done for fun

Who'd have guessed one day a writer I'd become

So I've laid myself bare, all the triumphs and trials

The trauma, the hurt, the frowns, and the smiles

Let these words be a beacon and offer insight

When you're alone in the darkness and looking for light

I'm certainly grateful that you took the time

To share my experiences I've put into rhyme

The Crystal Rose is a captivating collection of poetry and art. Beautifully illustrated, the accompanying artwork helps bring to life the riveting prose. Moving and inspirational, these pages are a journey through love, heartbreak, friendship, betrayal, and a celebration of life.
