'The Poetry In Me' breaks the mold in its mere layout.

With Dorothy M. Cox’s new book, The Poetry In Me, ($11.99, paperback, 9781498403672; $5.99, e-book, 9781498403689) the objective is expression through the medium of poetry, but the author shares that the goal of the work is “to train up a child in the way he should go…” (Proverbs 22:6). The poetry within the book confronts relevant issues, such as: social morality, self-determination, school days, seasons, and patriotism. The author’s mission is to present poetry as a venue to express the joys of life, as well as pressures and concern, in a socially acceptable way.

Dorothy M. Cox is a retired New York City public schoolteacher who has always strived to inspire and bring to the surface hidden talents in other. Calling upon years of experience working with young minds, she set out to create a unique book that offers room for her readers to express themselves. Together with her son, Christopher, she created the poetry and the abstract imagery within as an inspiration to the next generation of poets.
