I was born two months prematurely and during birth the umbilical chord cut off the oxygen to my brain resulting in my being born with Cerebral Palsy. Not expected to survive the night, the Lord spared me. I was told I would never walk on my own but I do. I am 45 years old and have been writing poetry for nearly 30 years. This is my first book of poems which I have been able to publish. Most of my poetry is spiritually and faith-based. I hope to publish subsequent books and volumes in the future.
