L. M. Youngabout this book: Children of Mine is an Inspirational poetry book dealing with the struggles of the children of our world. The readers of this book vary in ages, from under 13 to over 60. It is the type of writing and subject base that all people can connect or relate to.
The title, Children of Mine, simply states that these are the world's children, whether biologically connected or not. We used to live in a time where your children were mine and vice versa; this book was titled with that premise in mind.
I simply loved this cover. I had several pictures to choose from, but this one seemed to say...we are all one. Writing really isn't difficult to me, but I would say that some of the subjectr matter was a little difficult to delve in to. Several poems touch on the Trayvon Martin Shooting, where a 17 year old young man was shot and killed while walking home from the store. There are also poems that speak on childhood abuse and murder.
Every time I write something I learn something new about it. During the writing of this book I learned perspective; to look at life through the eyes of other people and how actions of others can touch us all.
I hope that we all can read this book and realize that we can all do better, but we must make an attempt. We can no longer believe that change will occur by itself.
what to read next: if you read and liked this book...
