I have a manuscript ready

The work to polish the manuscript is daunting. It’s a book of poems born during hard times. I realize it’s a compilation of poems about depression hope and faith while waiting. 

The question that crossed my mind was: “who wants to read a depressing collection of poems?” But I do. I like reading these over any happy recollection of events. Strange thing. 

I love these poems which are raw and a declaration of faith in dark times, lived honestly with my community and kids. 

I pray it will see the light of the print in a beautiful format someday.
