The poems in this book were written between the ages of 14 and 22 years old. This book started during my youth when I was sentenced to Juvenile Life with the Department of Juvenile Justice system. Long nights, bad dreams and a temper that caused bad judgment, I was encouraged to write what I feel. It is the poems in this book that helped me through so much and allowed me to express what I feel in an exceptional way. I never knew writing my first poem would be the beginning of a book that told a different part of my life through each page. So I wrote this book for those who don’t understand me, for others who are misunderstood, and to express what I have felt through the toughest times a teenager can imagine. This book is to show lost souls can be found and those with no soul still have a chance.

The Lost Soul The Journey of Faith Leading Into the Heart Of a Soul

She just smiles and waves at me. I wave back and look around. The airport is an extreme difference from the Atlanta airport. For one, it is much, ... As I am noticing all this, I hear someone behind us saying, “You're next, you're next.

For thirty-four years, I lived my life placing God in the category as the tooth fairy, Santa Claus, and the Easter bunny. I attended a church for weddings and funerals. I hated both. Something about the chapels always made me anxious and nervous. Maybe it was because of the way I felt about a God I didn't believe in. At thirty-four years old, I was set in my ways when it came to any type of religion. I was happy with my life. I had a wonderful husband, a company that was thriving, a home I loved, a nice car, and we took vacations often. I didn't want for anything. I also worked for everything. It was not handed to me on a silver platter. I grew up in poverty, a broken home, along with bouncing from one place to another through my teens. I was determined to be successful, and by my standards, I had made it. The only thing that I failed at was the religion topic. My husband would always try to get me to go to church or change my view. For almost a decade, he tried, but it fell on deaf ears. We would disagree about it, and I refused to participate in anything religious. I thought I was doing a great job and had my life together. That could be far from the truth. I couldn't see it. It was not until God himself visited me in my living room (He knew he would not find me sitting in a church pew or even near one). That's the day I found out I had it all wrong, also the day that my husband's prayers were answered. However, he never expected my reaction or how it would ultimately affect him as well and change his life. God wanted me to give up everything I worked so hard for. However, my husband didn't sign up for that. So he too was faced with very hard decisions. Are you wondering what God told me? Well, he told me to find a lady named Hellen in another country (Nicaragua, to be exact). Let's just say my life changed that instant. First of all, I had to tell my husband I am changing the way I live and placed my most prized assets on the back burner-my marriage, my career, everything I struggled and worked so hard for. All my time, energy, resources are now going to be devoted to God. You know, the one I knew nothing about.

He rose now and smiling at her, he said, 'I have to say you've got some pluck for a little 'un. But I ought to get on now. ... Just tell the truth and then you can start to put it all behind you. Goodbye, my dear.
