The book is a narrative of perseverance, bravery, and unwavering faith. Each poem portrays a story in the life of a single mother who has overcome adversity. Take a deep breath in and out of each phrase, sharing one’s experiences through her vision. Some poems make readers feel as if they are flying like a butterfly, recognizing the joy of their first flight, while others make them cry. The need for a loving and caring mate, as well as Trinidad’s dedication to her three children, are palpable in this tale. Her poetry, which sometimes sings and sometimes scolds, pushes readers to places they don’t know how to go, gazing deeply into their emotions. An interesting experience told through the eyes of a talented writer.

“Trini: My Life of Poems” by Trinidad Rodriguez is a compilation of poetry written after her divorce over a period of 20 to 30 years. Life goes on for a young, naive 32-year-old mother with three children. After some sort of crisis or incident with the kids, the poems would come to the author late at night. She can now state that the poems were her method of processing the life event and attempting to make sense of it as a professional mental health therapist. Trinidad was told one morning that when something frightening or dreadful occurs, God is there to help.
