Sometimes, we experience things that are so painful that we feel that there is nowhere to turn. Sometimes, we lose our focus and get caught up in circumstances beyond our control. Sometimes, our ideals take a back seat to the choices we make. "Learning to Forgive" is the result of a poetic journey I took over the last two years. In finding the words, I also found myself, and came to terms with loss, pain, and ultimately, I found the confidence in who I am as a child of God. This book is my tribute to God as thanks and praise for seeing me through that time period. Even though I didn't deserve His love, He never failed to show it to me. Poetry is one of the most unique forms of expressive art, and I am honored to be able to contribute "Learning to Forgive" as my humble addition to this genre. There is something for every one in the pages of this book, as long as you look deep enough and keep your spirit open. It is my hope that I have utilized my talent and portrayed what I feel God has put on my heart to say.
