Everything that you read in this book is a moment in my life, as you are probably familier with the facts that we all have our ups and downs as our lives are a constant chain of experiences,
there are times when we can wonder if it is worth carrying on due to relationship break ups, lack of self worth or even just the our general day to day living,
and i hope that my experiences good or bad may help or guide or even give other people a some hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel,
this book shall go through experiences that at some point we can all relate to you, rejection, depression, relationship difficulties loss of loved ones, children, and also the love that we often hold for our families, but even the deceipt and uncaring way that some parents and grandparents etc can also deliver,
and so i hope and pray that you have had fewer of these times than me as all poems in this book are of situations that i have been in, love that
i had and lost, children that i bore and the ones i did not bare, and also
difficulties of losing my children my home etc
and most important of how i got through all of this as there are words of comfort and support.
i have used poetry for the last 17 years to express my anger i found that it helped me to write everything down what i was feeling rather than punching out or harming myself, and the fact that i then made it into poems gave me a great sense of worth and admiration for myself,
and the fact now that i hope it shall help others is the biggest reward i could get which makes all my experiences a little more worth while
these poems are about me and my journey into adult life they helped me through all the mental health issues which have allowed me to be still standing today, i hope that they shall help and inspire you too in your journey.
About the Author
My name is Lisa Diallo and I was born in Oldham just on the outskirts of Manchester in 1972. I am at present living in Lincoln with my husband to be and my 4 children. I started writing poetry as a release and comfort without even realising I could inspire other people. Most of my later years have been spent looking after and raising my 4 children, who suffer with a.d.h.d. and autism, whilst still trying to deal with my own disorders: avoidance disorder and borderline personality disorder. I have always had a love of writing and plan to continue to write and I hope this book may inspire and offer words of comfort to many others, and that that shall make all their experiences that little more worthwhile.
