A poetic warrior is what I have become. I awoke on another early morning with fire flowing from my heart, scorching my veins, and commanding my thumbs as they rapidly typed on my iPhone. In my dark bedroom under warm covers, the compelling story ricocheting through my mind and haunting my thoughts had to be released.
I blinked unbelieving at the latest poetry creation. It had become my second riotous tribute in a row waging war to save the fallen that, in ignorant bliss, I never knew existed.
After twenty-one poems of love and countless uplifting quotes, my sword rang out as I withdrew it from a scabbard that, unbeknownst to me, had always been strapped to my back.
A deep lungful of fresh air filled a newly risen warrior with purpose, ready to do battle for the greater good.
In three weeks, a book of poetry will be released that has the ability to change the world.
Do you believe you can make a difference?
Do you have faith that a single book, through love, can reach those in desperate need of it?
In the perfect marriage of the haves and have-nots, the purchase of a book about love shares our love with the world. In a truly serendipitous chain of events, I’ve been given the inspiration and ability to write poetry and an internal need to share my unexpected gift to help others.
No dollar from the sales of the book will ever line my pockets. All proceeds, less costs and taxes, will go directly to help selected charities. So far, the charities I have chosen are World Vision and Covenant House.
The book title?
It is how one feels when they’ve willingly lost themselves to another.
It is the words you express to the one who captured your heart.
It is how every soul in this world should feel.
How great of an impact can one person have?
Infinite… when you stand strongly together among millions.
Next week, I plan to share more exciting information about the book, as well as the book cover. Meanwhile, please enjoy the first poem I’ve written post Utterly Loved that expresses how I feel in my heart.
Power As One
Resonate through the heart
Cries from fallen
Helpless souls torn apart
Urgent fire fueled from need
Beckoned to act in deed
Charting land of the lost
Pays exorbitant cost
Danger etched in granite
Needing to tame a planet
Shoulders forming a wall
Saviors answer the call
Together we have an amazing power to make a worldwide difference. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements regarding Utterly Loved, and please share news about it with your social worlds.
Your favorite shoe,
