This book is dedicated to all the people who have touched my life. Some people simply passed through my life like an ocean tide washing against the shore and then out to sea again. Others stayed through the passing of time until they had other places to be. There were those people that brought happiness and light and others bringing darkness and sorrow. Together they brought experiences along with my own life's journey that inspired the poetry I have written. The poems in this book express both the evil thoughts of man and the light of salvation through trusting our Lord. My simple reflections on the world.
