Scarred is an inspirational collection of poems detailing the journey and struggle of overcoming life's many stigmas.

"You're in pain. It's so beautiful."

The Kickstarter
Pretty Simple: Help an artist publish her new collection of poems. A contribution of $25 or more reserves your autographed copy of the book + a special gift, but as little as $1 will win her love and gratitude.

The Book (Excellent Gift Idea)
Scarred: The Beauty in My Pain
, is an inspirational collection of poems detailing the journey and struggle of overcoming life's many stigmas.

You’d be surprised how many people have “self” issues. They don’t love themselves because they don’t know themselves and they’ll never truly find out who they are until they become acquainted with the Creator.

As a single mother, I’ve dealt with my share of issues but the one thing that has kept me grounded is my faith in God. Scarred is about finding God, finding self & recognizing the beauty in pain.

The CD
Truth is, I’m more than a poet - I prefer the term “Spoken Word Artist.” And most of my poems were written as spoken word pieces. How great would it be to have a CD to go along with the book? I know right?! Great idea!

While the book is done, the CD is not. But with your help, I will complete an excellent 5-10 track CD featuring poems mostly from the book.

Poems

Life Again
It’s dark in here
I want to be free
Breathe life into me again

The bondage of sin does separate
What only your love can mend
Breathe life again

Just like Eden before the fall
You took two people who you knew would choose evil
And performed CPR on lifeless vessels of clay
Lord, have your own way

I know last time I wanted control
But now I stand broken
Only wanting to be whole
Breathe life again

I’m empty
The life that I lead
Oh, the air that I breathe isn’t enough to sustain me
My mind, my will
Not enough to refrain me from falling again
Lord, breathe life into me again
