M.M. Rodriguez lives in Central Texas with her husband and their five dogs. Writing is something she has always enjoyed, but never had the courage to share until now. This is her first book of poetry in which she shares pieces of her life experiences throughout her years. She hopes that by sharing her writing, she will reach others who, like her, struggled with physical and mental abuse from a young age. Reading and writing were her means of escape to another world where the dangers of the real world could not reach her. She hopes that her poetry will serve as a candlelight to those who feel torn, lost, and misunderstood.

When you feel as if the world has failed you, you learn to fight alone. When the sun finally shines upon you, it is hard to trust that the light is meant for you. You feel undeserving, afraid, and too unfamiliar with kindness. If you have ever felt like a helpless child, then you may find this poetry relatable. M. M. Rodriguez wants to encourage individuals everywhere to write and to share their struggles because writing can help relieve your soul, as well as the soul of others.
