Life Changes' is a book of poetry and is in the same style as my first book of poetry, 'Twilight to Son Shine.' The poetry explores my life changes, beginning with the death of my father, my slide into drinking and drugging, and eventual rescue from the quagmire of it all. It's a collection of poems for everyone who’s going through rough times and think they’ll never make it through. Don't give up, there is a way out.


sad story

we all have a sad story

my poetry tells mine

no reason rhyme or glory

life still turned out fine

your sad could be health

or maybe a family grave

maybe you have no wealth

but still you’re living brave

rude driver on the road

her life you don’t know

her sad day’s her mode

could have lost her beau


hope I don’t impose

my bad day on you

let’s not go to blows

and make a bad day blue
