One Single Rose… Poetry Blossomed from a Rose Core is a poetry collection about being single, kissing a few frogs before you meet your prince or princess, living, learning and loving yourself. Every character contained therein was typed and written by yours truly, self-published and distributed from my heart and my hands.
After having experienced heartache in 2005, I began writing as a woman scorned with my first poem entitled “Travel and Labor.” As I wrote a few more poems in that vein, I was able to let go of the past and found strength to motivate myself so that I could perhaps motivate others. By doing so, “Can’t = Won’t”, “Love You” and “Don’t Let Anything or Anyone Steal Your Joy” were born.
The inspiration behind these poems comes from three very important lessons that I learned as a child: 1. If you say you canâ€™t, you wonâ€™t! 2. Love comes from within and spreads to others–love you, no matter what! Big, tall, short or small, love you! 3. If you let others steal your joy, they have more control of your life than you do. Each one of us holds the keys to unlock our destiny. We are all winners! Embrace positivity and let negativity push you forward to greatness.
