This poetry book is a true labor of blood sweat and tears. It came about when two childhood friends were reunited as adults at a very hard time in their lives. They found they shared the bond, not only of friendship but also the love of words. A way they found to express their innermost feelings dealing with their struggles. This led them to create a book of poetry to share their journey. A friend, also from school offered to share some of his beautiful black- n - white photos to give their words life. So laugh, cry, love and learn and enjoy their words. Come share their lives.
