Poems For You And Me: Kindle Your Spirit by Ramesh Maharaj
Poems For You And Me are a compilation of 31 poems (one for each day of the month) and it sets out to recognize an array of difficulties in life that many of us share.
A personal message from the author:
I am not a Scholar,
Nor am I a guru.
Simply put, I am you.
My poems are a reflection of my everyday life experiences. Above all, it is my relationship with my wife, children, family, and friends that influences my poetry, which I believe will resonate strongly with readers.
This book is for those who enjoy poetry and are looking for a collection with a self-help angle.
— Ramesh Maharaj
Most were written in an identification and message style. It identifies our feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that many will no doubt relate to. I then offered, within the poem, a little pick me up suggestion.
The vision is that this has the possibilities and ingredients to maybe help someone through a rough patch in their lives. It may even give them a little influence to make changes for their own progress.
This poetry collection is meant to work like a “daily” calendar — one poem should be read per day. Each poem is followed by a “Life Lesson”, which the reader can utilize as a suggestion for improving their outlook on life.
It was written poetically in rhyme and at the end of each poem offers a small recapitulation of the message that is titled: Today's life lesson.
