by Trevor Muir
This book is a compilation of all the poems I have written in my life. Each one comes from a very personal place within me. Some of the poems truly show me at my most fearful, sad, and lonely moments in my life, and others are examples of how I was feeling at a time when I was desperate and lost all hope.
Some are of love, hope, a general wonder or curiosity, and accomplishment, and others came from the experiences of people closest to me.
I have added a page that briefly describes where the inspiration for the poem(s) came from, to help better tell the story. For me, poems and writing became a personal outlet. They have given me a safe way to express my thoughts and feelings.
I hope you enjoy them. If they are at all relatable than that’s even better. I hope that those who read these, and identify with them, will see that no matter how rough life may seem at any given time, it can get better if you just keep going.
Although the poems within these pages may be a bit random and unorganized, as is my life sometimes, they are raw and real. They are as I wrote them at that time.
I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read any or all of them, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I am sure my Mom will.
EXCERPTS (Exclusive Excerpt):
Oh my little boy
I was working through some difficult moments in my life and as part of the process I was asked to forgive myself and let go of some of the pain and burden I was carrying. For some reason, I chose to let it go by writing this poem. – Trev
Oh, my little boy, don’t cry anymore.
You no longer have too be sad, or let your heart be sore
You always were so precious and
one day I hope you’ll see,
That although you were not perfect, you
were the best that you could be.
You have carried all my sadness for so many days,
And I’m sorry that I burdened you in so many ways.
Now I’ve shared my tears and sorrow,
And I’ve shared my fears and pain.
I have asked God to remove them,
So, you won’t carry them again.
You no longer need to stay with me
to help me to be strong.
So, I ask, please go and play now,
before your time is gone.
I’ll love you for eternity, but it’s goodbye now you see.
You are no longer to stay
The little boy inside of me!
