Behind the Poem
I have decided to try something different as a gift to family and friends who support my work. I will be featuring a poem once in a while I have written based on something that has had a big impact on my life. This poem is based on what I have seen, not only in my backyard of Central Florida, but in other parts of the world. Homelessness is real. There are countless people worldwide who need support. In addition to a lack of food and shelter, some of these people have a myriad of health problems and have to cope with weather conditions that are in many cases too extreme. More needs to be done. Although I admire trying to find a solution for those who live on the streets with temporary shelters, I believe an actual roof and warm daily meals give a better sense of hope and purpose. This poem was originally published in NUIG ROPES magazine supporting Galway Simon Community charity that provides housing, healthcare and support to the homeless. Here is a link to their cause. https://www.galwaysimon.ie/

The purpose of this blog is to encourage and support anyone who wants to write or finish a manuscript. Whether its poetry, fiction or non-fiction, literary or commercial, genre specific or speculative, I hope that through my successes and failures I can be an inspiration to those who are pursuing their dreams.
