My poems involve everyone without any exception. We never know why, how, and when we were born. Everything we do now is more or less taught to us. The search within involves getting back to our origin and an attempt to find answers to the questions we inherently possess in our conscience. What better than poetry can provide a clue? Rediscovering our self can be a wonderful journey. It is the same story but unique to each individual. There are so many realms to poetry, but what strikes me is the 'Here & Now' element. This is truly the most joyous experience of our being. I have tried to share some of these moments here in this book.
The Doe family of rural Georgia didn't notice when The Great Depression began in 1929. It didn't make them poorer because they already had nothing. But there are things worse than nothing. One rainy night, young Rep, age fifteen, decided he'd been beaten for the last time by his alcoholic sharecropper daddy. He waited until the old man was passed out drunk and everybody else was asleep. Then he grabbed a piece of salt pork and lit out.
When the sun came up he was miles away, walking north. Which he did for the next four years. Avoiding people. Sleeping in the woods. Living on fish and squirrels, working now and then on small farms for room and board. One winter he worked on a logging crew. He survived. Without knowing it, he became a man.
The year he was twenty, it was turning cold and harvest work was over. Rep needed to find a place to spend the winter. So he came to Shoal Creek Farm, the biggest spread on that stretch of the Chattahoochee River, owned by violent bootlegger Red ...

To save my father's life, I have to marry a man I hate.

That's when I see him.
He's the man who showed me that love can petrify you to your core.

First thing's first.
This is a zero judgment zone.
So when I tell you I hired a total babe as my boy's nanny...
You won't criticize my decision making skills.
There is one other thing...
Said babe is my best friend's little sis - and I don't know how the h*ll I'll be able to keep my hands off her.
It's been years since I last saw her.
And, boy is she all grown up.
Breathtaking eyes that can see right through me...
And luscious curves for days.
I can't help but think about her putting my son to bed...
Only to sneak into my room after...
For one WILD night.
I can't just betray my best friend.
She's everything that's forbidden.
And everything I need.
So I pushed her away.
Now, she's gone for good.
And so is the baby she's carrying.
F*ck what anyone says - I'm going after the best thing that's ever happened to me and I'm not turning back.

I had no idea who he was until he almost ran me over. And frankly, I kind of wish I still didn't because then I wouldn't have a sprained ankle to show for it. And my leg wouldn't resemble a boa constrictor that's swallowed a feral pig.
Yeah, it's that bad.
I've spent years saving every penny I've ever earned to be able to transfer to Malibu University. And now my entire future--including my scholarship--is in jeopardy.
So I either accept the help he insists on giving me, or lose everything I've sacrificed for.
In the meantime, I'm going to ignore the fact that we're becoming friends.
And I'm definitely going to pretend he's not turning into the object of my... umm, dirty fantasies.
That's not happening.
