Reflections on Life's Roller Coaster Rides: 100 Poems of Circumstance(Link)

AuthorHouse
October 2008

Reflections on Life's Roller Coaster Rides HOLD ON - ENJOY THE RIDE! We all ride the roller coaster called, "Life!" Sometimes, the ride is fun and exciting, and, during other times, it can be a challenging and scary ride. But, as we face each day, we must remain positive and find ways to turn the good experiences into positive thoughts and motivations. In Reflections on Life's Roller Coaster Rides, Kilbourne paints the journey that so many people from within our country and around the world take - through the bright and sunny days to the rough and difficult storms. The journey of life is unique and precious, and we all need to cherish and be grateful for what we have. This book illustrates how life can affect us all and offers meaningful recommendations on how to deal with many situations. Life, like a book, has many plots and hence chapters, and each chapter is a journey each and of its own. This book reflects a slice of life and the hope that exists in even the darkest moments! Praise for Reflections on Life's Roller Coaster Rides "Dwayne has always been an interesting poet and speaker of the truth; this insightful and inspiring book is a true collection of poems that reflect both his life's path and the path of so many Americans." - Christopher Robinson, life-long colleague and friend
