From poet-author Tasha L. Valentino comes an anthology of heartfelt and emotive poems that lure readers to feel the sentiments that lie between the verses. She invites readers to see and understand that they are not alone in whatever they’re going through, because she will stand beside them as they take their emotional journeys, through her newly released poetry book You are not Alone: Give me your Hand.
In this poem collection, she evokes a myriad of feelings that almost everyone encounters, faces, and experiences every day or at a time in his or her life. From various interpretations of love to escaping from something or someone, from the values of humility and honesty to patience and trust, from being homeless to being home alone, from missing to apologizing, from living each day to knowing the truth, from fighting battles to confronting the person in the mirror, and more, the author touches on the realities that people have to struggle and overcome every day. Also, she reaches even deeper as she writes “Once,” “Presence,” “Attitude,” “As So,” and “A Player.” She also brings out real emotions when she says, ‘Letting go means, to look back and be able to identify one’s mistakes, regrets, and achievements. It means to not hate, but to love; to love oneself to know when it’s enough’ in her poem “Letting Go.” Moreover, she draws undeniable truth in her poem “Communication” when she pens down these verses, ‘Lack of communication hinders progress; communication requires more than one person. It’s an exchange of information in different ways: one receives the other delivers, vice versa’.
These and more poetic pieces that stir the mind and heart await readers in You are not Alone: Give me your Hand. For more information on this book, log on to Xlibris.com.
