Description : This book is a collection of my best poems that I could find. I had so many poems scattered everywhere; backs of bills, napkins, anything I could find when the words would come to me. So I made this book so they would all be in one place. Most of the poems are written in the last ten years but some are poems I wrote when I was younger. So that you can identify the younger me poems, I made those in red font. I hope you enjoy my poems and maybe can relate to some. They are just pieces of me told though my perception of life. Thank you, Rebecca Brown
