In 2015, I self-published two books of poetry: A Message from the Soul and The Green Book of Love while working at jobs I did not enjoy. They were ways to release emotional tension, and now they have become sacrosanct.

I pulled those books from the market to discover myself as an artist and to figure out what this calling truly means–at least in part.

Now that I have had time to learn and grow, I feel ready to share my poetry.

For better or worse,
Criticism or acclaim,
This is my Father’s art–
Expressed through me.
I shall not forget.
And I will sing its song
With a reverent heart.
