She has experienced it all, and she is proud of it. Everything that happened in her life stood for something, and she made a home for it. She doesnt regret anything she has done because each experience has helped shape her into the person she is today. All of the poems in this collection are actual situations.

My life has given me the knowledge to practice with love on my journey through The Blue. I thank all those to whom I have come in contact, as they have allowed me to realize who I am today. I wouldnt trade my past for the world. (2005, paperback, 74 pages) Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days.
