About the Book
This book has been a work-in-progress since I was 12 years old - 31 years before the time I published it. This is a collection of my emotions, my reflections, my hopes and my disappointments throughout the course of my life (so far). As times and my preferences have changed, so has the style in which I have capture my thoughts. This is a compilation of various styles of poetry, including couplets, modern haiku, narrative and free verse. I have compiled this collection into four sections - Spring, Winter, Summer and Fall. The order of the seasons/sections and the poems included in each have significance to me. I hope you enjoy reading my poetry! I have included some pages at the end of the book for reflections, which I hope you will share via my website: mincingwords.net or my Instagram page: @Mincing_Words.
