by Mary Ann Nemchick Poetry is my way of expressing myself from deep within my heart. It is to let you see and feel my inner thoughts about life, love, and the beauty God has given us here on earth. Life has many moments of happiness and also times of sorrow, which I feel is what makes each and every one of us stronger to face each new day. So come take this journey with me and enter into my world. If my poetry can help you in some way, I have self-satisfaction knowing I am reaching out and touching you. That would make my work worthwhile. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Growing up, I have learned to appreciate what life is all about. Since I have retired, it has given me many moments to sit back and reflect on my life. This is when I decided to put it into poetry. Writing poetry gives me a sense of what my life was and is still all about. I have four children, thirteen grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren, who fill my life with love. Life is not about materialistic things; its about how you live it each day. These feelings I have had tucked so deep inside are now expressed through my words in my poems. Along with writing poetry and being with my family, I also enjoy golfing, bowling, drawing, and painting. I have come to realize I have lived a fulfilling life but still feel there is something more in this world left for me to share, and that something is my poetry.
