Poet looks back on her life in autobiographical book of poems
HAMILTON PARISH, Bermuda (PRWEB) January 04, 2013
“Life's Challenges, Experiences and Blessings” is a collection of Simmons’ poetry, expressing a lifetime of emotional records in verse. She explores such topics as God’s plan, destiny and purpose, inspiration and even writing as a topic. She dedicates an entire section to mothers, specifically her mom. Throughout the book she drops in lighthearted poems, humorous poems, inspirational poems and poems about faith and glory. Ultimately, “Life's Challenges, Experiences and Blessings” is meant to allow readers to enjoy the journey she has taken throughout her life.
An excerpt from “Life's Challenges, Experiences and Blessings” from the poem “The Characteristics of a Mother”:
A mother’s touch, so soft and sweet
It’s almost like a gentle breeze
A mother’s hand so firm but loving
As she disciplines her seed
A mother’s love unlike no other
Always felt, even if it’s not expressed
A mother’s heart always yearning
For her child to have the very best
Simmons hopes to reach a wide audience with “Life's Challenges, Experiences and Blessings.” “I think this book will appeal to readers because it touches many areas of people’s lives,” she says. “Their emotions, morals, beliefs and above all it also allow them to laugh in the midst of adversity.”
