Situations Vol. 1

Love's Never Ending Beginnings

By: J. Gralyn Stokes


About the Book

Vol 1. is a collection of poems written between 1996 and 2010. I always had dreams of being a published author and one day having my words available to the world. Saying; “I’ll get to it tomorrow” or waiting for the perfect time wasn’t going to help me get to where I wanted to be. I had seen too many examples of how tomorrow wasn’t guaranteed. One day I woke up and put away the excuses, dedicated the summer to getting my book published. Life happens. Allowing fear to alter your focus and desire for something greater is a tragedy in itself. May this book inspire you to take the first step. Put away the excuses and stop procrastinating toward your destiny.
