Haven
An Anthology of Love & Loss by Jennifer Sims




I build a haven

away from the pain

I live in silence

away from the hurt

Dark forms reach for me

I lie

I cry for safe prayers

away from my sickness

Positivity falls from me

I wonder

I die for desire of love

away from being alone

But I live

- J.S.

Jennifer Sims is the President and Founder of Keeping the Books Inc.

Jennifer's purpose for writing this book was to share her passion for using writing and more specifically poetry, as a therapeutic tool.

In doing so herself, she was able to face hard emotions and personal struggles head on, by putting pen to paper.

To move past her own pain and thrive, in ways she never thought possible.

In sharing this anthology of love & loss, she hopes it will inspire others to write and help face parts of themselves, in a healthy and constructive way.

All profit of book sales will be donated to The Chris Butler Foundation in memory of Jennifer's brother.
