Foreword . . .
How many people can say they have not walked on rough terrain to get to where they are today? Most of us have been bruised and beaten to find out who we really are within; to find joy in this life we have been given. We are flawed beings with imperfect paths, and those turbulent journeys can either make us or break us.
It is easy to blame our past wrongs, the people who have tarnished our trust, and the bad bets the world throws at us. But we still hold the power to make a choice to become better than the humans who hurt us; to be the voice of change by learning from the experiences which have attempted to break us. Along the many roads traveled, the decisions we make will determine who we are to become.
Take a moment to walk in another’s shoes. The poets here have opened their Pandora’s Box, not to release the personal demons that taunt or once to keep them confined, but to share how to sever the weights one is shackled to.

Anthology: Imperfect Paths
Open this book and unlock Pandora’s Box… Experience the heartache that goes hand in hand with broken vows and severed bonds. Witness the crippling fear that stems from emotional blackmail, psychological abuse and depraved oppression. Feel the hopelessness that leaves us reeling in the wake of death’s trauma. Reminisce of days gone by – of trust long since lost, a dying love. Shoulder the weight of self-doubt and low self-esteem, sink to the depths of hell in the absence of self-respect. Succumb to society’s expectations and fall short of your dreams, give rise to the opinions and prejudices of a stranger. Keep reading to the end, and the realization that regardless of the stumbling blocks and shackles we encounter along life’s journey, we must not fail ourselves – for that would be a true injustice.
