In this powerful and evocative collection poet Kiki Hayes Faktor skillfully blends rhythmic verse and personal imagery into a colloge of life experiences which she has eloquently titled My Journey to Serenity.
As readers follow the author through her journey, they too will recall the curiousity, joy, powerful emotions, pain, precious dreams, and nostolgic memories experienced throughout life as we evolve from the chaos and confusion of youth into peace and serenity in later life.
In the work "Fare thee Well," Ms. Faktor relates her feelings on ending relationships:
can kill me
a clean cut wound
To say goodbye may hurt for a while
to stay will hurt
The joy no longer compensates the pain
and staying with you
won't make our love
Only more necessary
Readers looking to delve deeper into their feelings and escape into words will find themselves thoroughly moved by the striking words and deep acuity found within My Journey to Serenity.
