I began writing in 2005 when I took a religious course and my professor encouraged me about the essays I had written.
My husband died unexpectedly in 2010 my emotions froze leaving me numb. I began pouring out by feeling to God in the form of poetry. I stopped 5 years later. Upon reading through all the section of poems, there before my eyes was my healing process written in poetic form. They began with the day I froze and culminated with the day I crawled out of my pit of pain to the light.
I titled the group of poems, "Darkness Became Light Through The Prism Of Pain".
