About the Book

Poems that changed the World. Many of the poems in this book were written between 2000 and 2010 and reveal ideas, emotions and actions that changed many lives, forever. In our lifetime we arrive at many crossroads, sometimes, we wish we could go back and change the decisions we made in this moments, but sadly, we cannot. The decisions we made set of a chain of events and alas, in time, we find ourselves living the results of those events, and those decisions. This book contains some of the powerful pieces from that time, including a series of poems numbered One to Nine. Even now, the Poet states “when I read the lines of many of these poems, and see the images, and feel the emotions (again) I feel like they could crush me (and I think, perhaps they did). I hope, the poet states, that the poems in this - and the other books, let the reader know that they are not alone; that many of us have been, and still are traveling roads and experiencing journeys through life, through love, and more. With all the wear and tear that those events have had upon our hearts, our minds, and our even souls – those events and those people - travel with us still and remain our companions (both awake and asleep) upon the roads we travel still.
