My Story, Through My Eyes is a book of poetry about a young African American dealing with the ups and downs of life. It contains his current and past experiences. It’s about what he’s seen and experienced so far in this world. It’s about the different emotions and thoughts that he has. It contains his dreams and nightmares. We’ve all experienced joy and sadness. We’ve all felt love, heartache, and pain. We’ve all experienced stress, frustration, and strain. It’s about how to get over failure and defeat. It’s about giving up and trying. It’s about life, death, and dying.
