Hello Red Room,
I am new to this site. I am the author of a biographical poetry book "REFLECTIONS OF...A Diamond in the making". This poetry book takes a deep look at my life and some of my experiences and feelings when it comes to emotions, passions, relationships, spirituality and things that I have overcome including the most personal poem called "father figure" that talks openly and honestly about my relationship with my father and what went wrong. My poems are what people usually call deep and to the point, they are about reflections. Some of my poems talk about wanting and needing the type of love that I need in poems like "I wanna know". Other poems talk about my love for a diverse group of real music from the past in "Music - what would I do without you?" and one of the poems talks about poetry itself in "For the love of poetry". The book has been on Amazon for two months. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=reflections+of+a+diamond+in+the+making&ih=1_14_16_4_1_1_1_1_0_2.7_50&fsc=-1
