About the Book

One man’s journey though his reality of life which is mirrored in millions of Americans. Both addict and non-addict will benefit from Mike’s inspiring words. His poetry was found by his sister ten years after his death. The words were moving, compelling and inspired his sister, Sharon, to put his collection of thoughts into a manuscript.

Many subjects Mike covered were life experiences: love lost and found, addiction, depression, relationships, mother and fatherhood, ageing and his own personal demons that led him to the extreme.

Mike’s words were touching, thought-provoking, heartbreaking and ultimately tragic!

The book portrays the other side of an addict. The saying “don’t judge a book by its cover,” has one meaning … to go beyond what you see.

For the non-addict look past the addiction. Look into the eyes of an addict, which will reveal the pain in their soul. Give yourself an opportunity to get to know the person. Do not judge him/her because you have no idea the roads they’ve travelled.

For the addict, don’t sell yourself short. Believe in yourself! Give yourself permission to fulfill your dreams. You too can have an exciting future. If you don’t re-evaluate your future today, you may find yourself mimicking Mike.

Any journey begins and ends with you.
