The Up Side Of Down is a compilation of various poems and writings that have come out of my personal experiences, spiritual revealings and having a heart that is touched by the pain of others. While our experiences may be different, I believe that upon closer examining, we may find that we are more alike than our differences lead us to believe. Often the fear of being stereotyped and rejected by those who discriminate based on social standing and economic status; lead many with meager means to conceal who they really are. It is my wish that every reader find something within these pages, that will help them rethink how they looked at and prejudge others. The grave is cruel and many talents are buried there, therefore I choose to leave living epistles to my children, grandchildren and people of the world. I welcome you to share my world, my heartbeat and my vision. You see, I believe in writing out side of the box.
