About the Book

This manuscript is dedicated to my mother, the late minister Rose Marie Johnson. This book does not bear any reflection on any given person or place. The contents are my own personal perspectives with regard to the Bible—expressions, accounts, expectations, inspirations, and anticipated positive outcomes. The poems are short and long stories. They are simple and relatable. In addition, they’re based solely on my personal experiences, beliefs, events, and hypotheticals. So when you read this manuscript, remember that these poems and stories reflect years of events related to hardships, heartbreaks, and triumphs. However, with the help of God, prayers, doctors, caring people, and grace, I was able to recover and fight my way back. The road ahead is still long, but my Lord and Savior will be with me every step of the way.
