Firsts

This week was a week of firsts.

First day at a first marketing job. First time sharing my poetry from a stage. First published book. First legal filings for my first official business.

Each a step in the direction I want to go. Each moving me a bit further and taking me a bit deeper into unknown waters.

That’s where the joy in journeying comes from though, the unknown.


Days Long Gone, Part One is my debut poetry chapbook and you can find it at Likewise Press and Amazon.

I want to write the words I wish were written for me. For those dark moments I kept to myself and insisted on standing alone — even though I never really was.
