There are stories that were never told, dreams that were never whispered and victories that were never celebrated. As the world spins on its own rhythm, we dance to the music we hear. There are things we often fail to see and messages we often miss out. We fret at our loss, cry at our wounds and weep over what we've lost. These poems will make you see beyond the dark days and learn that you are more than who you think you are. And above all, you will realize that you’re not alone in your suffering. There are messages that you can relate to and some that will let you think of yesterday and then tomorrow. Together, we shall share our tears of joy and sorrow.
