This book is dedicated to all the important people in my life, and even those that have touched my life in one way or another, whether it be friends, acquaintances, co-workers, relatives, etc., especially in my times of struggles and hurdles, as I continue my disabling battle against my toughest opponent, depression. These poems express my true feelings and thoughts to the best of my ability. I dedicate this book to the three most important people in my life, my father Kal, my mother Florence, and my younger brother Eric. I also dedicate this book to the staff of the United Way, for their friendship and support over the years, with whom I was an office support volunteer, such wonderful people to work with. Last, but not least, this dedication goes out to two acquaintances I’ve made along the way, Amber Peterson and Ian Clara, for their friendship and support, thanks to both of you as well. May life be kind to everyone out there, all my best.
