People expect too much of you in this life. You face the challenges of growth with all the strength you can muster. The journey of aging that we face, from infancy to adulthood, can be scientifically defined as Ontogeny. This collection chronicles a large part of my journey: discovering my identity, finding love, finding misery and learning what I am to the world around me. You'll take a peek into the eyes of a first generation Haitian immigrant and poet...an intimate peek. I am not afraid to share. Join me on this path and perhaps you'll learn things about yourself that you otherwise might not have uncovered.
