Publisher's Summary

Depression is something that everyone faces in life and can be very difficult to deal with and cope. I authored this book as a collection of uplifting inspirational messages to help that cause. In the narration, you will find poems and metaphors that I wrote as I faced my own demons and challenges in life. Sometimes, with tears in my eyes I would pour the words out and these stories would emerge. Day by day, I rose above the depression that has enveloped many aspects of my younger life. Sometimes from a failed marriage or relationships, other times from the loneliness or health problems that we all face eventually.

From the loss of a loved one to feelings of failure and shortcomings, life is full of adversity, anxiety, and so much pain that can and will get you down if you focus on it and allow it to take hold. 

I am now a firm believer in the power behind positive mental thoughts. After a near suicide of my own, I awoke with a new passion, a realization of my own mortality, and the understanding that life is precious, and even in my darkest hour there is light everywhere. 

Make the choice to look and see it. Be a light for others! When we lost Robin Williams, I knew that suicide was more of an epidemic than I ever imagined. Arguably, the funniest man in the world was that hurt, that sad? And no one saw it. Yes, I thought, there is a need for these uplifting messages and metaphors that many can relate with. So, I have decided to share my life work and inspirations that I have found along the way with hopes it may bring relief to others in need.
