This book probably won't make Oprah's Book Club and may not be published, but my psychiatrist said I better write it for both my sake and for the sake of others. The characters and events in this chronicle are real. You know that old saying "The truth is stranger than fiction." Well, it applies here. Some of you are going to think this book is bullshit based on the premise that no one could have gone through these events and remained sane enough to record it. But that's okay; I'll take a lie detector test to confirm each and every incident. That is, as long as it's not in my hometown, because I don't trust the powers that be downtown. You'll learn why. There will be a lot of swearing, but I won't take the Lord's name in vain. I'm a believer in the Lord. I can motherfuck you with the best of them but won't use His name in vain. It's kind of a dichotomy. I guess I'm a cross between Holden Caulfield in The Catcher in the Rye, Randall P McMurphy in One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, Luke in Cool Hand Luke, Max Cady in Cape Fear, and Andy Durfresne in The Shawshank Redemption.

Confessions of a Sensitive Soul: A Poetic Journey is a revealing, insightful, and passionate look into the mind of a voracious poet. These poems evoke a spectrum of images and genuine emotion while exploring the intricacies and nuances of contemporary life, love, relationships, self and spiritual growth. "There is a new poet on the scene! Proof that God is alive and well and continuing to inspire our creative juices. Nyja's poetry was written to reflect her journey, challenges and triumphs; but upon closer examination we find our own reflection. It is simple truth offering us introspection into our own lives by making us giggle, think, laugh out loud, sigh, cry, and applaud the memories. I think we can expect more from this gifted voice. Bravo Nyja! My daughter from God." -Marla Gibbs, Actress
