I hope this collection of poetry instills in you a hope for much more to come. This collection is designed to push you to be brave, this volume is all about risk taking. Life is too short to push off your dreams or anything else of importance. I hope you begin to feel empowered throug... h the pages to come. I believe we all have a specific purpose and reason for being here. Even if that purpose takes some time to find, one day everyone finds it. It's never too late to do anything. You just have to be willing to try. MALIA MAKANA is the self-published author of the poetry book Euphoric Stars. She grew up in sunny San Diego, but currently, resides is Northern California.
