The Poetry Collection

Over the years, as I struggled with addictions, depression, and other mental health issues I turned to poetry as a form of therapy.  I was able to express my suppressed emotions through poems.  Releasing these emotions was extremely cathartic for me.  Some of them are darker than other, but like the Psalms the poems point towards hope in the end.  Maybe I should call these my psalms.  I also wrote of God’s creation which has always had a special place in my heart.  I will be slowly adding more poems each month.  So, please make sure to check back here to see the latest poems.
