A Poem A Day is a mixture of poems by Dom The Poet. This collection features poetry about sexuality, love, heartbreak, change, along with other topics. It is to provide the reader with at least one poem to read each day of the year. It doesn't follow a specific storyline or theme but instead allows you to form your stories and interpretations throughout each poem portrayed. Part 1 provides 120 poems, representing 1/3 of 2021 (January through to April). Most of the poems are written in English, however, a few are written in the writer's native tongue, patios, otherwise known as Jamaican creole. They say an apple a day will keep the doctor away, I guess a poem a day will keep you from going insane. Enter the depths of my mind and soul with caution, beware of the puns and metaphors that will attack and watch out for the alliterations and similes that may crawl underneath your feet. Prepare to read between what may seem to be the simplest of lines as each word that has been poured into each poem is a masterpiece on its own. Welcome to A Poem A Day.

This book, A PRAYER AS A POEM FOR EACH DAY, gives everyone a spiritual connection with the lifeline of God. Although these poems seem to be primarily for the Christian but you will find that much of the meaning of the words concentrate on the individual as being compassionate and doing the right thing in this world relationship with one and another. The rhyming of the words is like a musical background. Some of the poems help the reader to cope with the hurts and torments of their inner self and understanding the pains of their fellowman. It is prudent that we fundamentally deal with one day at a time to simplify our lives and we should pray daily. This book will be an excellent guideline. Each poem is a story emphasizing the virtues of goodness as tools to resolve problems and to find peace in the spiritual world. I'm Richard A. Dixon, author of this book, A PRAYER AS A POEM FOR EACH DAY, and in this AUTHOR BIO it will give you a genuine insight of a perfect example of a compassionate heart that was initiated by an early foundation of living in a Christian atmosphere with my Grandparents. My religion is my driving force. I have formally written three other books as a series of Spiritual poems. My Bachelor of Science has also helped me in my current writing endeavor. My conclusion is a poetic reminder: This book is not just to read for a day or a week or a month or even a year, this is for a lifetime to build your character and to bring your heart spiritual cheer. PRAY EVERYDAY OF YOUR LIFE TO CONFRONT THE WORLD OF SIN PRAY AND ACQUIRE HOPE AND DIRECTION PRAY AND LIVE UNTIL THE END.

To begin, my name is Ronnie and I have been writing poetry on and off for about ten to eleven years to date. After being asked in school to try my arm at writing a poem for a local book that was later published, I began to enjoy putting pen to paper and writing poetry about all things we livethrough such as the goods times in life, as well as the times of worry and despair. To date I have written hundreds of poems; some lost andscrapped as time has gone by and some kept with me throughout. I have always had a dream of writing poetry for a living and have even givingsong writing a go as you will later read in the publication. This book is merely a chance for me to show my writing abilities to other people whohave yet to view my work, and hopefully progress a future career in writing and publication.I thank you for taking your time to read my poems, as each one has a place in my heart which remind me that when life gets bad, there isalways time for it to heal. Each poem was writ through good and hard times and can relate to millions of people around the world.I hope you enjoy reading.My Page can be found at www.Facebook.com/EROGCP
