Writing is a creative process that can be incredibly fulfilling and excruciatingly empty at any given time.
The ups and downs I have experienced on my journey to embrace my gift has been filled with magnificent highs and detrimental lows (simultaneously at times). Shared within the pages of this Poetic Devotional are some lessons that I have learned while pursuing my dreams as well as a few entries from my personal journal that helped me battle over, around, and through all the situations circumstances, and emotions that were trying to convince me to give up on my dreams of sharing my gift with the world.
Though it may sound strange, I had to learn that it's writing that makes you a writer, not if or even the number of readers that your work attracts. So once you have conquered you, your greatest critique, presenting and revealing your work to everyone else will be simple. With that being said, it is with great pleasure that I share with you these principles, my inner most thoughts as well as the gift that I am so passionate about. They have helped me to stay focused and motivated and it is my sincere hope that they do the same for you.
In life, challenges and situations can convince you that you are on the wrong path, chasing the wrong dream, or are wandering aimlessly through life.
In life, challenges and situations can convince you that you are on the wrong path, chasing the wrong dream, or are wandering aimlessly through life. While there is no way to prevent problems and obstacles from littering your path to destiny, sometimes a simple reminder that a challenge is temporary is all you need. Hearing the testimonies or experiences of other believers can also be the beacon of light needed to foster progress on your journey.
With that in mind, I compiled a few of my innermost thoughts in the form of lessons, principles, and poetry to share with you. Each item is inspired by a day or situation from my personal journey and is symbolic of my efforts to write even in the midst of chaos. These written works often allow me to remember, in detail, where God has brought me from over the course of my life. These reflections help me to stay focused, motivated, and moving forward, and it is my sincere hope that they will do the same for you.
My love affair with writing began with poetry.
Through the Highs and lows of life I have found that writing poetry keeps me motivated, provides an outlet for every thought and emotion and makes the journey far more interesting. And since every day is filled with a balance of things planned and things unexpected I have a very eclectic collection that could only be called Poetically Random.
Tears from Heaven: An Exploration of Emotion Through Poetry
As with any relationship, there are ups and downs, moments when the word “joy” just isn't enough to relay one's emotion, and times when “sad” or “hurt” doesn't say it all either. Tears from Heaven is a compilation of poetry and inspirational commentary that mirrors the ups and downs that believers may face on their journey. The purpose of this collection is to assure the reader that they are not alone in their walk, offer words to build their faith, and the encouragement that they need to move forward in God’s will.
Langston Hughes used his expressive talents during a time when it was preferred that African Americans were neither seen nor heard.

He recorded stories that would have been lost in time, giving them a memorable rhyme and a place in literature. And for this he will forever be remembered and esteemed as a great talent and an important part of history.
'Letter’s to Langston' is one writer’s tribute to another, across time and circumstance. This poetic journal includes poems inspired by the writing of Langston Hughes as well as poems chronicling personal and social milestones, shortcomings, and long awaited triumphs. All of which is presented in an effort to carry on the torch of relaying our stories to another generation.
