SOME OF THE REASONS: “Why I wrote the book”

colorcover
i want to grow up to be a person
smiling Haitian woman
ate so fast worked up sweat
I’m just
one of those nobodies
who somebody
told
about
a
Somebody
that loves everybody
and
doesn’t
want to leave out anybody.
This book
is written especially
for
everybody
who has ever felt
like a nobody
and wondered if
anybody cares.
I am
a living testimony
that
Somebody
does care
and has
a Divine plan
for
everybody,
even you.
