I’ve lived a life of many facets from childhood agonies to young adult tragedies and dysfunctions to middle age recoveries and spirituality. My poetry has ranged and evolved with these changing facets and began with love and angst, anger and pain and has also evolved to speculation and observations with my god given gift, one of my purposes in life, to help people with my poetry. My later poetry is more solution based with directions to assist the tortured, agonized and addicted with my own personal advice to the reader. I have always liked the term ‘interventional poetry’ to describe such help.
