Hi - I have decided to put together a book for soldiers and their families written in poetry. I have started writing the poems and even have some military personnel helping me. If you have a poem you would like considered - please send me a Note. Or if you are service person, or family member and have a story or poem to share - i would gladly look it over, it I choose it to go into the book, I will gladly post a picture, and 2 line bio to go with the story or poem.
I plan to provide 10% royalties to service agencies in need... But you must realize - I am not a WELL-KNOWN poet, my first book only sold 200 copies. But I feel this is something I NEED to do... I don't know much about the military - just what i read or watch on tv, but I am captivated and feel this is SOMETHING I MUST DO.
Help me if you can...
If you are unhappy with the tune of my poetry, for instance if it is too dark or depressing for you, just don't read it... I don't need to be preached too... I am in a REALLY GOOD PLACE personally right now... I am in recovery of addiction, I don't use anymore. I am not depressed, nor do I want to commit suicide (regardless of what my poems say) I am not suicidal.
I wrote over 200 poems while I was incarcerated for 8 months... I am uploading this poems to poemhunter. Just because I speak of uncomfortable subjects does not mean I am at THAT point today.
TODAY I AM GREATFUL TO BE ALIVE, AND GRATEFUL THAT MY LIFE HAS BEEN TURNED AROUND AND I HAVE BEEN GIVEN ANOTHER CHANCE IN THE RUSE OF A MIRACLE.
PLEASE DON'T PREACH TO ME. I post poems that Have been written at an earlier time. and are not part of my life now, but I did once have those feelings.
I am a published poet, with 2 books published. I am 40 years old, I have been in prison for the last year... i am out now. I had written over 200 poems while in incarcerated - so that is why - I upload so many at one time.
I am working on a new book, and many of the poems I have shared here, will be in that book. I am trying to get feedback on my work, because I believe in myself - and think this is gonna be the book that makes me famous.
