Within these pages lies the sincerity of a child; a child who has longed for a voice to be heard. Creativity dwells between each line, each stanza, each verse. Each author’s story is unique-no, not the story presented in this book. Instead, it is their real story, which reflects their past and present, and ultimately was the seed that blossomed into the accounts that you shall soon read. Their hard work and passion for creative expression has led to an epiphany in their lives. No more will they struggle to release their innermost thoughts and feelings. The pen shall soothe the apprehension of their minds.
Within these pages lies your voice, too. Through the voice of a child, our own reflections are manifested. Listen and learn about yourself. Taste and see that our gumbo is one that surely quenches the soul.
