About the Book

Trini, My Life of Poems is a story of determination, courage and unyielding faith. Each poem is a chapter in a life filled with a single mom’s struggles and perseverance. Breathe in each line and share those experiences, viewing them through the windows of her eyes. Some poems allow you to soar like a butterfly, realizing the freedom of a first flight, while others bring an ache to your heart. Feel the longing for a loving and caring partner and the devotion to her three children. Her prose takes us where we don’t know how to take ourselves, looking deep into our souls with poems that sometimes sing and sometimes scold. A fascinating journey expressed from the heart of a gifted writer. Find yourself a quiet corner and share a life in prose we seldom have the privilege to visit.
