E.M. Bautista has been writing poetry since high school in the late 80's. She has published two books of poetry Hollywood Hearts and Mere Words. She lives in Central California and is married with three children. She has a few more books in the works but also enjoys her hobbies of film and art. She really appreciates her family and friends because relationships are really what matter most in the world.
This book is a short essay about my struggle with depression, self-esteem, shyness, as well as being a stay-home-mom. It is a stepping stone to finding purpose and meaning. It is realizing the value of who I am regardless of whether I stay home with the children or work outside the home.
