Author Ginger Gordon began writing poetry in the early nineties. She was homeless at the time, and writing poetry was the only way she could record her feelings. Her poems were read four years in a row at the Poets and Writers Convention, held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada. From the Heart is the first collection of her poetry; her poems are filled with humor, sadness, and romance. They capture the raw emotion of someone who has struggled with health and family issues her entire life. They are also wistful and filled with the hope that one day all will be well and that she will achieve her hopes and dreams.
A Daydream, A Goal Many a daydream have come my way, My hopes, my dreams are not so intricate, A little hard work, So I could reach them some day. Do not want to depend on anything, I hate disappointment. At times, many opportunities, Some came, and some went. To give up my goals would be weak and inane, Try to get where I want would be advantageous, With much to gain. Living on this planet in this day and age, Much competition Helps me decide, Put my ideas into fruition.
