The Evolution Of Who I Am Becoming.

by Sharon Lowe

April 1, 2015, I passed my exam to become a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW).
May of 2014 I graduated with my Master’s in Social Work.
May of 2013 I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Social Work.

One would think with all of the above accomplishments I could be the captain of my own ship. Not so. I was still acting like a deck hand. Soon after passing the LMSW exam, I recalled telling those in my life that I had passed. I heard the word “Congratulations,” but I felt nothing. I felt empty. Nothing was mattering anymore. I felt like I was just existing in a life that was not mine.

I made a bold and courageous decision to embark on therapy. Therapy was like dropping a pebble into the water and the rings which are spun, created this amazing opportunity for self-discovery. I had absolutely no idea how earth shattering some of the rings would reverberate on a daily basis.

I present to you my work of healing. Within all, there is an artist, which can take on many forms of creativity. Allow yourself the opportunity to flow and be free to create beauty.



Wasted

by JAnn Bowers

Welcome to the fifth book of poetry “Wasted” by JAnn!
This book is packed full of short poems and micropoetry with a sincere touch of mystery and a strong feeling of mixed emotions written with the ease of her pen during the late hours of the night. JAnn’s poems follows a sense of loss with a sense searching of something she or anyone could be lingering for in life.

Quietly she sits
Knowing her pen
Will paint the words
Of a futuristic feast
Of daydreams
As beautiful as waterfalls.

“Wasted” Book Review
I read Wasted and I discovered an amazing poetry book written by JAnn Bowers. With her poetry she took me to a world of loneliness and despair of a broken heart who found hope going through waterfalls, stars, moon, and night. Traveling in memories and illusions the poet carries us to a world of secrets some sad, some full of hope and strength. Finally taking us to sunshine and paradise.
In every poem I was able to feel her because she has a good way with words. Short but deep poems presenting an inner struggle that lets us feel connected with her.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good moment of quiet reading. I really enjoyed reading Wasted because as I went through the pages I could not stop reading because it felt like it was a story in which every chapter was unveiling the strength and capacity of recovering from a broken heart.

“Wasted” Book Review
Wasted is a string of poems that JAnn twirled into words full of meaning of loneliness, bit sad and a huge dash of hope. Her poetry flows from one poem to the next easily, making it an enjoyable read.
The poems â??Words’ and â??Sketch a Dream’ are two that I found to be a motivation. A favorite line of mine from this book is “Captures her beauty/Creates her strength/And… She reigns like a queen/In her own world of words.” There are numerous of more lines similar to this, filling up these pages in Wasted.
