Discovering Who I Am, From The Journey Back to Myself: A Book of Healing Poetry.


I wrote this poem when I was taking Blue Belt. For the longest time, I have not been comfortable with who I am, was being what other people wanted me to be and I did not who I was. During Blue Belt, I took a slow dive into the depths of who I am and discovered who I really am. I learned many things about myself that has made me stronger and helped me to find my voice.

That is when I wrote this poem. This poem is an invitation to look inside of yourself and discover who you are. It’s an invitational to go on a healing journey to heal yourself.  Please watch this video and pick up a copy of The Journey Back to Myself: A Book of Healing Poetry today at amazon.com.
