Living Poetry is a collection of some of my most personal works. I started writing poems after my mother passed away from cancer in 1992. In starting this venture along with poems I had already completed I decided to take a look back on my life and write from other past experiences. I reviewed my childhood, my relationships, my family and coming to terms with my sexuality. The remainder of the collection contains similar poems from everyday life and the works I did by personal request of family and friends.
