This book is a collection of poems of the Lord, love, life, and the tragedies that various hurricanes brought (namely Katrina and Gustav). I have a feeling that those storms, other hurricanes, and different trying seasons will be the subjects of some future poems. ..".this book of hymns...is too anointed to be simply called a book of poetry. Never did I imagine that I would be so blessed by reading this precious book. God has moved through Mark Y. Kim and you will certainly be moved by this powerful work." Rev. Chaz Howard, University Chaplain of the University of Pennsylvania, Editor of Souls of Poor Folk Mark Y. Kim is a dream keeper, through his collection of poems in Never Did I Imagine. He works hard at his dream-the dream to reach the "I am finally free" state. He does not wish, however, to arrive there by himself; he wants to take those of us, who have "voided hearts," to meet the person who can fill the void and make us complete. That's why he declares, "Together, they will compose a melody-one of eternal harmony." Daniel Hong, academic advisor at C2 education Mark Y. Kim was born on November 29, 1977.
