This collection of poetry includes some of the author's earliest works, many written in admiration of the ever-changing crush.
These poems span the course of 11 years and can be viewed as a time line of the author's life, learning from each and every new experience.
If they, combined, were to be given a theme, or a moral, it would be one of growth. At a critical age, these poems depict the growth and development of the mind. That of a girl becoming a woman and all that she endures, both emotional and spiritual as she develops a taste for love and reaches into the depths of her own heart and mind.
The battle for independence, the desire for attraction, and the journey to spiritual understanding are all key experiences that influence these poems.
