"Poetic Expressions for Life's Journey," Second Edition, features the theme Endurance and consists of seventeen (17) electrifying and captivating poems. The poems show how critical it is to endure during difficult and challenging times. The collection contains some powerful words and promotes optimism when experiencing distasteful situations such as loss of loved ones, illnesses, spiritual void, violence, self doubt and insufficiency. The poems take the reader on a journey to self endurance through spirituality and finding the inner drive to overcome every and any obstacle. The inspiration behind this theme is the need to provide hope to individuals who live in gloom and hopelessness; giving up on life, themselves, dreams and lifelong aspirations. The motivation behind the collection was to spread the word of hope through this medium and reinforce that despair can be repaired and "transformed to success."
